The biggest chunk of aluminum I have is the base of the Renault/Better Place pack .. but I don't think there is enough flat surface to mount to the controllers.

I'll see what I have kicking around. And if it fits in my freezer

If it's too big for the freezer, outside is 35 - 45F right now. That should be cold enough to pre-chill, depending on how big it is.
