Yes, put some kind of padding over the Sintra and under the fabric. You can use anything you want to pad the panel, but you would generally use closed cell foam (brand name Volara) which is very firm. It comes in 1/8" and 1/4". Most auto upholstery supply stores have black closed loop automotive carpet or black trunk lining at a reasonable price. Here's one place: Trunklining
