Custom Luxe Carrying Case - Foam Addition

I saw this done in a thread a while back & had a few moments to spare this evening aside from the wrap's and wanted to add some foam to the top section of the case for barrels. I personally cant stand having case after case after case in my gear bag, I'd rather have everything in 1 spot to keep it stupid simple and clean.

The foam is 1" thick and was ordered from

kayakoutfitting.com

Type: Closed Cell Foam

As for what was used to cut the foam I simply used an exacto knife "dull blade/dope! waiting on my new shipment for more wrap jobs" to carve the path followed by a standard long blade knife to cut the entire way through the foam. For the backing I just applied a carbon fiber vynl to the case itself so when a barrel or insert is removed there's a tad of eye candy.

Now I did NOT spend alot of time cutting the foam so the cuts are by no means super clean, I just had a few minutes to spare this evening and wanted to knock it out. One less case in my gear bag this season makes me a happy camper. Eventually perhaps this weekend I will clean up the cuts and shave it out a bit to make her look crisp and clean.

Anywho some quick pic's.

Sorry, my Luxe is in a million pieces and at a few different areas for some custom treatment so i put in there what I had available

1.0, I've had it since the dlx luxe came out

FYI: I went back and cleaned up the cuts with an electric knife. It works wonders on foam.

Any issues or worries with those barrels on the top portion of the case coming into contact with the guns body? Maybe everything is sunken in and I just can't see the depth very well? Just curious - very nice job though - way to utilize all the space!

I don't have the body back at the moment but it should not be an issue at all, I can push the barrels and inserts all the way into the foam if needed, for the pics they are barely pushed in to make the barrels more presentable but they can be sunken in much further if needed. Thanks!
