Monitor Self-steering

I managed to make it through an entire Monitor installation without taking a single picture. Whatever - it's stupid-simple to install, and works like MAGIC! Pictures to follow. Eventually. Maybe.

Top off. Insulation was dry and looked good. Surprising.

Liner out

And plywood liner-liner out

Original structural newsprint.

For sale: 1 icebox liner. Small dent, will buff out easily.
Sawzall action complete.

Engel drop-in enroute.

Updates imminent. (Eventually!)

The Engel arrives, with giant thermos for scale.
Helpful instructions. Yep, that's pretty much all of it. Now we have to find something printed in Korean....

I added anywhere from 1 to 3 inches of foil-backed blueboard insulation around the already-insulated Engel box, because why not.
The box is hanging from a composite plywood ring. There's also some aluminum angle in there to stiffen things up.

TA-DA! The trim ring is cheap pine, and I'm slowly replacing all the counter tops with cheap laminate flooring. We're sort of waiting until we get to somewhere with cheaper and more reliable labor to do something fancier, but in truth I don't mind the "poor man's yacht" look....
We also ended up with a new large locker. No idea what we're going to do with this yet.
