    Anybody relined a guncase with new foam?

    Hi all
    Got a shotgun carry case ( which I will probably never use, but hey) and the foam needs replacing. It's the kind where you have a space for barrel, stock and foreend and chokes and choke key.

    Anyone know where to get decent foam, and more importantly, how do you cut the stuff neatly?

    Personally I'd use the closed cell foam.

    Pieces glue together brilliantly (Ados F2 or similar) and the cover with carefully cut felt.

    I cut the foam using a very very sharp blade, but I suspect a fine jig saw blade could be fun too

    Don't use open cell sponge. Moisture will always be your enemy in that case.

    go in to Para with one of the existing pieces and they have big machines for cutting it neatly. lots of different types of foam. if you need to trim it up use an electric knife. if you find you need an electric knife and canít find one i can send you mine to borrow
