"OBM,will sticky back paper stick to that spray foam without tearing the foam up when you replace the paper?"

All sticky back papers are not the same, 6" DA usually works fine, long board usually has a death-grip. You can test your's on the back side first, if it's too sticky run it over your pant leg once or twice to kill the stick. Don't leave the paper on over night, it won't come off without heat.

Have fun with it, it can be a real time saver.

I got a bunch of differnt size pvc pipes I use all the time but they dont I 've been using heater hose and radiator hose with sticky paper on them but they arnt stiff enough for a lot of jobs.I've got at least two hundred bucks worth of dura blocks but this will be real handy for the unusual shapes you run into I can even put steel wire in the block so I can bend them and keep a contour.....Man ,I've used a crap load of that foam and never even thought of that....Thanks that'll keep me busy for a couple days...

ok, i'm no profesional, but i have a 50 chevy fleetline with alot of curves. i baught those durablocks, and love them. there are only so many durablocks vs. so many different curves on a car, so sometimes i had to look around the garage and find what i could use to do those funky curves. whenever i had an outside curve that was a pain i used one of those black 3-m rubber squeeges, the bigger 3 x 4 inch ones you would use when wetsanding. i would put my sticky back paper on it. you can run it under hot water to make it more supple an it will conform to your surface. put the paper on it after you give it a bend in the way you want it to stay, so when your sanding it won't get any kinks in the paper and use the x and straight across patern. worked like a charm for me.
