Unless I am overlooking something one VERY important concern was left out, ventilation! If the compressor is to be enclosed in any small area, ESPECIALLY if something like insulating foam is used, then good ventilation is a must and even forced ventilation using a fan would be a good idea. Heat is one of a compressor's worst enemies and to enclose the unit in a tight insulated area might lead to serious problems, what was suggested is a good idea but ventilation needs to be considered along with it.
