foam for door panels

Hi guys,

I posted this question on another thread but seem to have been ignored. I'm new at this so give me a break.

I'm looking for the foam to sculpt door panels. I got something called etha-foam, 1/4", at a local plastic shop, but it's not really smooth, and when I glue it down, it looks really lumpy. I asked about Volara, but they'd never heard of it. I'll try an upholstery shop, I guess. Is there any other names for the right stuff?

When you glue the vinyl or leather down, do you kind of work it over the panel, or lay it down and press it into the grooves?
