I recently acquired a JNC, however it was missing the original dash pad, and had a piece of leather/vinyl put in its place, which has become worn itself.
I am planning to make a replacement dash pad, I don't expect it to come out nearly as well as an OEM dash pad, I just want it looking decent, and provide some protection from the metal dash in case of a crash.
My thoughts were, to get some vinyl from a craft shop, then get some foam, and stick that underneath, punch in the appropriate holes and place it in the car. Any suggestions on what foam I could use? I need something thin, dense enough to provide ample cushioning in a crash, but not so dense that I cannot curve it to the shape of the dash.
