Photo # 1 - is just a quick shot showing how the insert drops into the cutout area. This is a very close fit. But I want it to be very tight looking. This may come back to haunt me later and become too tight when the upholstery material is glued over the foam makes the area even tighter. But it is a chance I have to take at this juncture.
Photo # 2 - After cutting out the foam for the insert on the other rear side panels, I install a few mounting clips and pop the panel in place. I need to temporarily install all the foamed flat panels in order to do the foaming on the curved corner pieces.
One other small note. The little pieces of masking tape I installed around each clip hole seem to have done the trick. The clips slide in relatively easily without getting caught up in any glued down foam.
Photo # 3 - Next Iâ€™ll foam the two back panels of the car. These are the panels which surround the rear window and then the area directly below it down to the floor. I want a small accent insert of tuck and roll where these two panels meet. To do this, I first cut out two backer boards for the inserts, one to go on the top panel and one to go on the bottom panel. I am using black waterproof board for these backers.
