Talking Home Made ARB Fridge Cover (Completed!)

Over the weekend I enlisted mom to assist (and by that I mean do all the work) to make a ARB fridge cover. I didn't want to spend 200 bucks on a transit bag, and really wanted something lighter in color. The purple/blue plastic on my fridge gets noticeably warm/hot if it gets any sort of direct sunlight.

I use the fridge pretty much every week to/from the mountains and it sits in the car during the work day on friday. Hoping this will keep it even more cool.

Material was scrap closed cell foam camping pad on all sides (nothing on the bottom), some scrap ripstop nylon for the interior, and 1000D Uncoated Cordura in silver. There was no white available anywhere, so silver it was.

I had that New Belgium Patch for a good 10 years, never had a use for it. Figured I'd take the opportunity while it was there rather than wait another 10 years.
