    My husband made this, this past weekend minus the solar panel. The measurements the guy gives are alittle off. And it doesn't blow 40degrees like this guy said. Also, the liners are really hard to get, we bought a 3 pack online at Home Depot and they were about $18 and they took 3 weeks to arrive. We couldn't tell the difference between just the fan blowing on us or when it was blowing on the ice. We thru ours away.
