All up it cost me about $70 but could have done it way cheaper if I didnt put a few coats of paint on it...

Too hot to drink outside on your own. Bachelors fridge... beer, sauce, vegemite, bread and wine. The shelf below is meat. There has to be like 10 food groups there at least

Ps... cant half tell that Julie is away :lol: :lol:

Have done that numerous times with old fridges. Cut the freezer compartment off for a small boat easy and put wheels on the fridge part for a home party esky. Seal up the cut ends with aluminum from an old sign; pop rivet It on and squirt expander foam to fill any gaps.
Keep things really cold but do tend to rust on the boat.

those smaller tucker box freezers work well , just cut the bottom of to get rid of the step in the bottom about 2" of and add some styrene foam for insulation and fit a bottom , add some of those chest handles and a couple of rubber bonnet tie downs to keep the lid shut.
I'm not young enough to know every thing .
