Hey Willys36.......

I was looking in your project journal, and saw that you made a pleated door panel. I went onto the "your auto trim" website, and saw that they had:

- 1/4 inch "Closed Cell" Sculpting Foam
- 1/4 inch Pleating "Sew" Foam

I noticed that you used the sculpting foam for your door panels, is there any difference between the two other than the Pleating "Sew" Foam being open celled?

Thanks!!

Sew foam, or open celled foam is less dense than closed cell sculpting foam, or otherwise know as Landau Top Foam.

Sew foam has a backing on it, most often it looks like cheese cloth. The sew foam should be used on the seats only.

Perfect, just what I needed to know! Thanks!

BTW, can I just use spray adhesive, attach the 1/4" foam to a 1/8" piece of wood and cover that with my material?

Or is there a type of foam other than sculpting foam that I need for door panels?

Thanks!

I'm using the open cell sew foam to make the pleated tweed seat inserts for my seats to match the door panels (will post some pictures in my journal tomorrow). As Krist says, it has a cloth back so glue the upholstery to the opposite side and sew the pattern in and you have a thick padded panel perfect for seats and the two layers of cloth capture the foam and lock in the pattern. The closed cell stuff is not comfortable to sit on but is perfect for carving to shape and covering w/ upholstery and still give a relatively soft look/feel.
