    I want to replace the foam in a Perazzi combo gun case. I have looked at craft stores, Walmart, and Jo-Ann Frabrics. Does anyone have any idea where I could find this foam? Thanks, Hoosier

    The Foam Factory. I have used these guys for foam on some boat rehab projects. They have all kinds of foam. Hit the link above.

    Headliner foam is available at many fabric stores. Its what is on the ceiling of older cars.

    I used foam from a ground mat from the camping section of Walmart. I have seen since that they have a mat for yoga in the sporting goods section that is thinner and may be better.

    Be careful as some foam will deteriorate and become like fine sand. Find the type used for cameras

    I used some carpeting foam, worked pretty good.

    Be sure to use closed cell foam, it does not absorb water. A good source is a ground cover pad "mattress". Walmart has them in the camping department for about 8 bucks. The thinnest model is best. Plenty for the whole case. I have done several. Hardest thing is restoring the wrinkled and soiled liner. The last one I did, I just left the blue foam with no liner; it looks better than new but has no Perazzi logo.
