1947 Ford in Dans profile

Could you share some details? Are the door panels different depth foams? Could I sew two materials together at the seams for some elevation change? On the ceiling, 1/2 sew foam or landau foam. Is the foam then contacted to the roof? How are the bows(?) fastened? I have a '32 Ford with built in headliner, a like a Harwood or Bear(?) Hoping I can sew the pattern into the headliner either on landau or sew foam and glue to the fiberglass headliner.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

The door panels have 1/2" foam in three different places and the strip in the middle 1/8" padding. The lower portion has since been replaced with carpet. There is no landau foam anywhere in the car. At each one of the divisions, there is a seam that was either glued down or mechanically fastened with staples. The headliner is done the same way, the center is 1/8" thick and the rest is 1/2" thick. The headliner is upholstered to a piece of waterproof panel board, which is screwed and glued to a piece of 1/4" luan plywood which is screwed to a grid built out of 3/4" hardwood plywood, and attached to the car on the sides and front and back. If I was doing this car today, the headliner would be upholstered to a piece of PVC foamboard. Yes, you can do whatever you want on the fiberglass headliner with either landau foam or sew foam. You'll need to sew on a perimeter of fabric that will be attached to the car.

There is nothing that says you need to use closed cell foam, or anything else for that matter, to pad anything. It's usually a case of personal preference.

There are some places that closed cell foam works better, and then I do use it. These door panels were done with closed cell foam.
