Default Rubbermaid MLT Conversion but cant find cooler/stainless steel fender

Bought parts for Rubbermaid MLT Conversion but cant find a cooler. Looked at a few hardware stores and sports stores and Walmarts.

My questions are: Can these parts only be used to convert Rubbermaid coolers?

I could'nt find the 5/8” stainless steel fender washer. I bought a rubber fender for now. Will that work? Me and my roommate were arguing about that today. I don't think rubber will work.

And finally I live in Madison Wisconsin. I know its out of season and I really am buying the cooler at the worst time of the year. But this summer I want to finally goto AG. Anyone know any other locations where they might sell these coolers?

Thanks.
