Default Center Console - Cooler?

Has anyone used the center console on the 04/05 as a cooler?

I noticed on the way home today that the little carpet comes out... and the inside is one piece moulded plastic with two easily sealable screw holes (can you say hot-melt glue)

With a long trip on my mind ... it got me thinking.... Cooler?

If it seems like you can't spit without hitting a Prius, roll your window down.

Melgish, you either have too much time on your hands or those Fla. hurricanes got to you.

I suppose so... Fortunatly before I dumped the first load of ice in, my wife asked "What about the cigarette lighter in there?" Boy that could have been a mess.

But that got me thinking of 12v peltiers and heat sinks...

It just never ends

Ok----, now I have to ask a couple questions.
1. What is today's date?
2. Who is the current President of the United States?

I think my center console is already very cool, . Ray Charles lives there--when he is not in the CD player.

My thought...tiny leak, SKS oscillator dies--huge money loss....not worth it. Buy a little ice chest, velcro (hook part) on the bottom, stick it to the hump.

You could. Just don't add the ice. The centre console is already quite cool.

We've already used the center console as a cooler, sort of. We put a half-gallon of milk in it when we were on our way to a play and the milk store was closing before the play ended, figuring it would stay cooler than if we just put it on the floor. And it did, probably...

Well, we've already got a six-pack sized cooler left over from our hurricane evacs. I guess we'll stick to that as I've got no time left to experiment with scraps of above-ground-pool lining, and electric cooling.

2004 technology and still no soda dispenser... oh well at least I don't have to stick quarters in it to make it go.
