    Hi Everyone,

    Is there anywhere you can get replacement foam for X-Metal cardboard boxes. I thought i saw someone selling some on ebay a few months ago (when i didn't need any) and now I cant find it.

    It does not need to be OEM and considering the way the stuff is breaking up i don't want that :)

    Does anyone have any suggestions or sites where I can get decent foam?

    Thanks,

    DSJ

    I just want someone to make them and sell them 10 at a time ;-)
    I'm no good at making things.
    I posted a wanted ad on the exchange but no responses. Not surprised though as anyone who has non-sticky box foam at this point, won't be selling!

    Good luck OP!

    The crazy thing is I posted a buying ad for a Juliet foam insert and had a response in less than 15 minutes! I guess I got lucky!

    With the box or just foam? It's fairly easy to buy boxes, but nobody just sells the old foam inserts. Why would they?!

    I got the internal box, not the sleeve. He wouldn't sell just the foam because it was "glued down" to the interior but it wasn't glued at all! I have an empty inner shell for a Juliet box if someone needs it! Lol

    Good luck selling that or even giving it away! That's a very niche market!

    I'm going to try to source the foam and make my own. Think I'll use Ducati red foam!
    Will let you know how I get on.
