Default Sweet Deal!!!

Hey guys, I am totally stoked because I just picked up a 10 gal Igloo cooler that was used once for water - and it was only $15!!!!! Now I need to scour these forums to see what I need to put on my hardware store shopping list!
Wish me luck on getting all the right parts put together on the first try!

Well I went to HD last night and got most of what I needed. They didn't have everything though. I went home and the 3/8" components I got were way too small for the hole in the cooler. The hole is 7/8" diameter, so I will return what I got and try to get parts that size. You were right about the SS fender washers... the guys at HD looked at me like I had lobsters crawling out of my ears when I asked for them.

I doubt I will be able to find 7/8" ID SS fender washers, so is there ANYTHING else I would be able to use? I want to try this thing out this weekend.

I almost lost my mind looking for the SS washers, I hate to order little stuff like that off the internet. i finally found a washer that would work at the LHBS. I was talking to one of the guys about my problem and he said oh I've got one. If it comes down to it, you can buy a smaller sized stainless fender and drill it out, but let me tell you, that is a serious pain!

Yeah I KNOW it is a pain. I had to modify one of those little bas***ds once for a piece on my truck bed cover latch. I think I went through 2 dremel discs on that half-day of a project.

I found a 4 pack of SS washers at Lowes . They have them in drawers of specialty Items. I did have to use a bastard file to enlarge the hole a tiny bit but they worked fine.

What size were the washers springer? Was there a part # on the package?
