    You should be able to remove the lower housing of the fridge John. I would then make up some sort of brace inside the housing so you can screw bolts into it for a better permanent mounting option. That front strap is already pulling away at the mount point and you've only just put it in. Its only going to weaken in time and make it worse.

    Yeah, was thinking of making up another plate this time rectangle to over the whole bottom of the fridge and a smaller one to set inside the bottom cover.

    Perfect hight, but is quite long. I've pushed it forward as much as possible so I can still grab 1st (auto). That makes it just about flush with the rear of the front seats.

    Took the fridge out to see how I could bolt it down. The bottom section is in two parts. One is about 1/3, the front section where the cable inputs are. The rear section is sealed to the main body along the sides and around the rear. It also has 4 screws along the red line. Taking them out doesn't do anything to the rear section.

    Another way could be with a couple of L shape brackets, one on each corner at the rear, only concern there is if I use a self tapping screw that's about 15mm long will I hit anything on the inside. I didn't think I would. There would have to be at least that much clearence around the unit.

    The front I can easily screw through the cover into the plate.

    Any other thoughts..

    Whats under the rubber feet I can see to the right of the pic? I would assume there is a screw under this. If there is, maybe use this screw hole as a mounting point?

    That was the first place I looked when I took it out of the box. Nothing, peeled back the rubber and nothing.

    Other option is to make a mounting plate for the outside of the case, which can be screwed into the part of the casing where you can do so and then Sikaflex the front section of the plate to the base. Or drill right through the insulated fridge section and bolt it down onto a plate. Then just silicone over the bolts on the inside. Use stainless bolts though.

    Keen to see what this looks like when it's done. I've started looking for an arm rest for my left arm, a fridge may be the answer???????

    Made up some pieces at work today. Bit of a rush job, but wanna see if they work out.

    The grey plate will be bolted down like the old one, but this time the stainless sleeve will be bolted to the plate. I've got a piece of form for the fridge to sit on in the sleeve. Will see how the other pieces fit once the fridge is bolted down.
    The stainless is what they call rimex. The other parts once fitted correctly will be powercoated then painted the same colour as the interior code K I think it is.
