Just thought I'd post a quick review of my experience with my new cooler thus far:
I received my stuff a couple weeks ago, but just got around to installing it today. I must say, I'm very impressed with the workmanship and quality of the parts. The instructions are excellent, and installation was quite easy. Took me maybe 2-3 hours, but I'm sure it could be done much quicker.
I opted for the thermostat control and natural aluminum color. I haven't fired her up yet, but am optimistic that everything will work well.
