    Hi All,


    What a great project for my Son, Daughter and Wife!  :)

    So we are almost done with the framing and I have sourced ALMOST all the parts for the sim….2 questions though so far:

    1. I am having trouble finding the correct density (everything seems so soft.) foam for the glareshield.  I went to hobby lobby and Joanne fabrics, but the foam they had by the yard seemed to (for lack of a better term) “squishy”….in other words, just not strong enough. Where did you all get your foam?

    2.  The side tvs….How on earth are they supported well enough?  I just dont see how they can stay on a piece of wood as small as the framing wood is.  any pics of how you set up your side tvs would be helpful!  Thanks!

    I actually bought 1″ foam and black vinyl from JoAnn Fabric this past weekend.  My wife is hopefully going to make the glare shield this week so I’ll let you how it turns out.  Also, I had responded back to your other post but had another thought on the TV’s.  I purchased Vizio’s and although the bottom was flat my wife and son still had to hold them steady until I had the inside and outside walls installed.  I’ve attached a picture of the outside wall.  I also cut the inside holes too high so I used felt pads on top of the 2×4’s to raise them.  Hopefully this helps.
