This looks back in stock. That being said, I'd be disappointed if I got it and it was just uninsulated plastic. Heard people drilling holes in these and filling them with expanding foam but I'm unsure if I could really be arsed doing that.

They really don't take that long to make. Once the coolbox is opened up it only takes 10 minutes or so to fill it will the foam. Once trimmed off and put back together, one of those silver backed camping foam mats make it look the business when made to fit and stuck on with spray glue.

I just picked up one of these 52 litre cool boxes from Tesco for £20. Not too impressed to be honest, lid is on a hinge and won't come off, also it doesn't seem to be that well insulated. Not sure what to do, might be taking it back.....

Hi!
Try making an insulated box to hold it, using builders' insulation panels or wrap it in a cheap quilt. At the very least it's a big box - it has potential.

It's got screws in the bottom holding it all together. I will take it apart tomorrow and see if it has any insulation. If not, maybe as suggested a trip to the builders merchant! Hopefully it will work out and will be the first step on my way to AG setup

Took it apart today, it's got polystyrene insulation slabs about 1/2" thick. Think I will look into upgrading it.
