Dye I4 Foam Replacement

Dye apparently isn't stocking any replacement foam for the masks, and I just picked up a ninja frame off of the BST that needs new foam and ears. I know I can get the ears from Dye, but anyone have any ideas on what to do about the top piece of foam?

Without the top foam it doesn't sit right on my head.

your best bet is prob gonna be to contact dye, or use foam from lowes or home depot.

I did they don't carry it. I can order an entire replacement mask frame though which includes the foam

I'm thinking I'll try one of the empire mask kits and just reckneck rig it. Few beers and some contact cement and I'll either have fixed it or permanently attached my face to it.

I just did what you mentioned: use the Empire foam kit. Works perfectly fine.
"Hey, buddy, can you come here and shoot out the left side for me? My remote line doesn't let me...."

Look at your comment. Back to mine. Back to yours NOW BACK TO MINE. Sadly, it isn't mine. But if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate crap it could LOOK like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through the comments, finding the ones that your comment could look like. Back at mine, what is it? It's a highly effective counter-troll. Look again, MY COMMENT IS NOW DIAMONDS.

What's a good glue to use to glue the foam back in? Mine is coming out?

I've used Elmer's Rubber Cement to repair several Flexs and i3's in the past. Available at most Wal-Marts. Comes in a small jar with a brush applicator. Just use a light layer on both the foam and frame and allow a minute for each to dry a little before pressing together.

Good Luck!

I just finished up replacing the i4 foam with new foam from a Profit.
The Profit foam replacement is more comfortable, and available:

NOTE: The glue I used is shown in the pic (E6000)
