Get a soft cooler. They are a lot easier to stow. American Outdoors makes a good one just make sure not to throw empty cans or bottles in it.

Just get the small soft side with the actual plastic liners (Walmart)and stick them between the seats or under the Pass side foot well.

In my Carrera , I keep the cooler as far fowared as possible to help with the porposing. Empties in old helmets bag back by motor. Lightening headers so nothing hot. Good luck

Before I reoplaced my logs with Lightnings, I used to fit a steel-sided Coleman ice chest between the exhaust manifold and the closeout panels in my engine bay, perfect fit, just leaned on the log.

My headers are a couple inches wider, not a prayer now. Need a smaller chest, but metal-covered ones near impossible to find.

My steel one is stainless, and guaranteed for 100 years (untill 2103).

Bulkhead forward with raised edge, use a bungee with hooks, and go around ice chest. Boxes under buckets are water tight. Crush empties and stow there.

I tried to include pictures, but got "upload errors" constantly. WTF?:)st:)st

I have a soft sided bag from AOCoolers.com that I just put on the floor in the boat, but I guess I dont have another choice, I have an 18 Hallett with OT bassetts.

Plus I like my beer to be no more than an arm's reach away anyways.:)devil

Put the ice chest on the floor, and doesn't everyone just throw the empties next to the motor? I thought that was standard practice?
