Soooooooo! It didn't quite work out as planned. When I was putting this together I thought - Mmmm, need to put something between the material and the foam or it might seep through and ruin it AND if I don't put something between the board and the foam, that'll stick too. So, having calculated carefully I thought - put some polyurathane film between the foam and the material AND between the foam and the board, won't get stuck that way, see!

However, I had done such a good job of sealing everything up that when I took the pile of rocks off the top this morning, I found a bag of foam in my "sandwich".

See, the material doesn't have a mark on it:

The edges had sealed and I had a bag of liquid foam.

<sigh>

tomorrow is another day :mrgreen:

I have to commend the mascochism, (sorry I meant determination), I'd have given up and used foam by now!

Going to have another go in the morning, picked up another tin of builders foam this afternoon. I have applied another layer of thinking to it:-)

Well Robin, you will be pleased to know it worked fine. It was all a bit of a learning curve to be honest and I can say that this is not something I shall be repeating unless the rebuild in question is very special or the client has very deep pockets. It was interesting and I am pleased I attempted it and especially pleased it has worked.

I did destroy the velvet lining that I had used so I have asked my supplier (mother in law) if there is more :mrgreen:

Well done Graham,
If it was easy, any one could do it!
I look forward to seeing the write up and perhaps some pics on the rebuld on the beast itself and the case as well.
When its done Bob will do a back to back test with the real thing, the FWB 65, and then I look forward to it returning to my collection.
Robin
