Our new tailgate cooler – a small Igloo cooler mounted Frankencooler Blowbox(tm) TWIN featuring frigid, high output airflow in a compact, self-contained unit.
I have posted for sale the last completed Frankencoolers and Blowboxes I will offer this year. These units include free UPS shipping to the lower US 48 states.
I will continue to offer component packages until fall. I appreciate your business!
This ingenious individual placed a Blowbox in his classic VW’s front trunk and routed the cold air through a panel he built in the glove box in order to conceal the aftermarket cooler during car shows.
I wanted to share the excellent handiwork of my friend and neighbor, Yasutaka (Taka) who owns and pilots a Cessna 182.
Summers in Phoenix are torturous for pilots, and Taka wanted something that would provide short-term cooling for ground/taxi to altitude.
Starting with the Blowbox blower/heat exchangers engine, he engineered and fabricated a lightweight console that would fit between the seats of his plane and provide cold air streams via eyeball vents for front as well as rear passengers. This console also incorporates drink holders as well as Blowbox on/off switch, stepless blower speed controller, and digital temperature and voltage readouts. Taka also built a custom lightweight remote ice chest that sits in the rear baggage area.
