    Default My first mod...Cooler removal

    So I decided to jump in with a fairly easy mod and do the cooler removal. I had read a few times about cutting it out and ordering an AO cooler that is soft sided that will fit right in. I didn't have a dremel tool so I decided to try an angle grinder I had. Probably not the best tool but worked ok. Toughest part was getting the blade into the corners. I tried to keep a shop vac going while working but still gets pretty messy.

    Overall it was pretty easy. It's nice to have a cooler that works well and fits nicely under the seat

    here is a link to the cooler if anyone is interested. I used the code SWA for a 10% discount.

    Nice work!

    So the cooler specs say 8.5" high - do you have that much space between the floor and your seat bases that it doesn't have to compress at all?
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    So you can fit ballast under the left seats

    Default My first mod...Cooler removal

    Not sure what year it started, but in my 2012 the cooler was just held in by 4 screws. I didn't have to cut anything. The AO is much better, and much easier to get bevs to/from the boat.

    I was thinking about doing this to my boat (2002 Outback LSV) so I can add additional ballast under the cooler but I heard after removal you need to brace that section. Anyone with a similar boat have that issue?

    I did it because the original cooler is really crappy at keeping anything cold and it was cracked as well. The cooler fits in perfect without any scrunching.
