Totally off topic for this group, but if you have a source of compressed
air, try using a 'vortex tube cooler.'
Here is one link that I know of. Like the Peltier cooler, you supply an
energy source which in this case is compressed air. One side of the vortex
tube expells hot air and the other side, cool air. They are used a lot in
industrial sytems for cooling instrument cabinets in adverse ambients.

Other links can be found searching Google for "vortex cooler"
Hope this is useful to you. Let us know how you make out.
