Can you PM me your info? That would be fantastic. I was actually pricing that stuff online the other day.

On the foam I have I have used contact cement. Both the water based ( more non-toxic) and the regular stuff ( use the respirator gnarly shit), both seem to be holding up pretty well. I think the gnarly stuff is slightly stickier.

Second the no on the blue foam pad. Mine sucks. Gets beat up really easily and slicker than piss on a toilet seat.

3M makes a spray contact cement. I have used it for years in kayaks and on my dry box. I use it on Mini cell and it has always worked awesome. You can buy it at Home Depot. Spray it on both pieces you will glue together and let it sit for a bit till the glue gets tacky then do another coat, wait till it gets tacky then stick'em together and trim of the excess with sharp razor. Don't stick them together too soon or it will not hold well and sand and crap will get under it and it'll wind up peeling off.

I've always used ethafoam, glued on with the 3M spray adhesive. I do agree that it gets rough after awhile, and holds sand that can do a number on knees. Last spring I got a sheet a peel & stick minicell from Cascade Outfitters to pad the top of a cooler. Not as thick as the ethafoam, but easy to put on, and seems great so far.

Custom Jacks plastic pads. Not as expensive as I was expecting and sweet. Choose your colors, softness, thickness.

Sea Dek. it is kind of expensive but will last Alot Longer Than Foam. I Plan On Doing My Drybox When The Ethafoam Gets Aweful. Old Boat Glue For Your Rubber Works really well To Fix It To What You Want.(Contact Cement, In Other Words).
