Hey Guys

I am building a fridge mounting power station thing for the back of my rig and i want to cover it with the grey carpet stuff that you see on speakerboxes and such. I have searched pretty good with no luck finding it.

Any ideas?

P.S. Here are some sneak peaks of what i am working on (there will be an inverter in the lower part of this):

Box Bolted To Floor Via Cargo Tie Down Holes:


Box With Eyelets for ARB Fridge Tiedowns


Box With Eyelets for ARB Fridge Tiedowns


Box with 110V Outlet and 3 Marine Grade Cigaretter Lighter Plugs

Any stereo shop that builds custom boxes should have it in many colors or could get it for you.

Thanks Guys

I will keep checking. I went to the local Circuit City install shop and 2 local stereo installers and none wanted to sell any. Said it was only for custom installs and they couldnt sell just the carpet! :(

Thanks

most auto reupholstry shops carry this carpet.

or marine shops.

although the speaker box stuff is lighter to make sharp bends an all.

try some custom car audio places, they may have in stock as well.

Will there be enough air movement to cool the inverter?
Yes, there are going to be (2) 4" Fans in the rear of it to circulate the air and keep it cool. I will be using the digital ENGEL thermometer as shown here: http://www.compactappliance.com/xq/...roductID.8882/qx/shopping/product/product.htm To monitor the temp of the inside of the fridge and the temp of the inverter. The thermometer has 2 leads, one for the fridge and one for "Ambient" temp. I dont really care about the ambient temp, so i will be using that lead for the inverter! The specs say it is good to about 158

You could also put a fridge slide on the top.
Correct, that is the long range plan and why i built it like this. For now, i will use the eyelets and it will be stationary, but down the road, it will have the slider setup!

Many more details coming along with my dual bat setup!

Thanks for looking!

Home Depot sells exactly what you want. They have it in rolls and sell it by the yard.
Damn! Why didnt i think of that? I probably could have picked it up when i got all the other stuff for the box! :D Heading there tomorrow!

Thanks

Nice choice of 12v outlets ( west marine) I did the eyelet thing for a while before I got the transit lock - (4) 9" rubber bungies did it perfectly

Looking good!

Home Depot will also sell you that fake grass stuff - use that instead :flipoff2:

This should be in outfitting not tech.
