    This discussion was brewing elsewhere, but I didn't want to hijack the thread. The point was that we in the south can't find any foam thicker than 1/2 inch. Bonding sheets is a less than perfect solution in my experience and driving to lllinois is a hassle. I have never asked the local Lowes...
