Aerogel Spaceloft Around a Waeco CR80 Fridge and CB40 Topload Coolbox

Hi,
I was hoping someone could give me some advice.
I would like to better insulate my Waeco CR80 front opening fridge and my top loading CB40 coolbox with spaceloft.

How would I attach the spaceloft insulation? for example should I use sticky aluminium tape and foil to stick it to the outside, or should I do something more permanent with epoxy.

There is not alot of room around the fridge and thats why I have the spaceloft.

1) spray on contact cement.
2) Then alum. foil rap
3) Then alum tape to seal edges

See the Aerogel pipe rapping videos for visual detail.

Cotemar suggested exactly what I did when I built my box.

Be liberal with the spray.

Cryogel comes with a layer of aluminum foil on one side.
