Thanks for taking the time to post this - invaluable! I just purchased the same model with the same objective in mind. How is your alternative insulation working out? Thanks again,
Robru

I'm glad the pictures helped. I've had no problems with maintaining a proper temp and it still appears to be running efficiently. Let me know if you run into any problems.

Doing something similar, but with a different version fridge for a buddy. How did you cut the plastic/foam on the sides. First went at it with utility knife, but figured there has to be a better way.

Cheers!

I also used a utility knife. I found it difficult not to take out large chunks of insulation during the process.
