The panneling is mainly on the front with a slight bit on the left to stiffen up the front. The air vents for the compressor are on the right and have not been blocked.
Here are some more pictures to give a better idea:
The front has thin ply sheet draped down from the collar so I did not have to damage the freezer. The left side has a piece to hold the ply rigid.
The right side has nothing. (the ply was also my work bench cover for staining and so forth. It did not need to look pretty.
You can see the vent holes for the compressor.
All panels were glued on to the ply. This makes for easy removal if necessary (not that it will ever happen!!)
So far I have had no problems with heat.. Time will tell though. The spot where it sits has a small gap down the side which I hope is enough! There is also a big hole at the back and I have left quite a bit of clearance at the back for ventilation.
