Sounds like you need small electric scooter and a handy missus to go and buy beers on demand instead.... eh! Grin

The scooter sounds good but the missus buying the beer nooo that ain't happening. She moans that I drink to much as it is. That's the whole point of going to Le Mans. I can drink for England and scratch my ass if I want to with out any moaning from Err in doors. Thumb

Maybe I am missing something but surely taking a plastic box and polystyrene is going to take up more space than just a polystyrene box or cool box which will be simular size as the plastic box without the aditional polystyrene. If you leave any gaps in the polystyrene it will just let the heat get in as insulation has to be continuous to work. You could always try something like a fold up cool box.

https://www.decathlon.co.uk/waterproof-bag-for-cooler-36l-id_8502029.html?iv_=__iv_p_1_g_63343993672_c_316416595328_w_pla-309168562543_n_g_d_m_v__l__t__r_1o12x_pla_y_15177021_f_online_o_2486451_z_GB_i_en_j_309168562543_s__e__h_9045035_ii__vi__&gclid=CjwKCAiAqOriBRAfEiwAEb9oXTC53WbpfFjzDVloNz8eiUF8iFz5EGxavJaSV-Gi924IcK1QtUOKyhoClZAQAvD_BwE

But it sounds like you are set on this building a box idea so why not use a strong cardboard box which can be folded for travel then plastic bin bag on the inside, your polystyrene on the outside and gaffer tape for strength / building. Cardboard is a good insulator anyway due to the air voids as recomended by tramps globally.

Thanks Finn. That cooler bag looks just the job. I will take a look at it as we have a Decathlon near to where I live. I also like the cardboard box idea as well. I understand what you are saying about the space required for the polystyrene. My thinking is, it could be stored higher up on top of heavier stuff on the rear seats. But I am open to all ideas.

You might want to check out others suppliers as well to get the right size that was just the first link I came up with when I googled

Folding cool box

Yes that's a good idea. I have never heard of a folding cool box before.
Cheers
