Default YAT Rail - Foam Covering

This guide was copied directly from SK. It is a direct copy nothing has been changed. This is the definitive foam covering guide. Thanks to Jason of Your Auto Trim for this guide.

the following is a "how to" on gluing and trimming foam onto a poker table rail.
i am not saying this is exactly the way it should be done, just the way that i do it

the following rail is 44" wide x 92" long,. the rail itself is 5" wide.

i am using our 54" x 108" 60lb. 1" hd foam and instabond adhesive

step 1:
lay rail "top side" face down onto the foam:
make sure you check to make sure you have it positioned evenly all the way around before gluing.....



step 2:
i like to raise the rail up & spray a little adhesive onto the wood and the 1" foam to create a "tack" to
hold the foam in place as i work.



step 3:
going around the outide radius of the rail, i spray adhesive onto the edge of the wood rail and the surrounding foam.



step 4:
let the adhesive sit for about 1-2 minutes to allow it to "tack" then begin pressing firmly the 1" foam up and onto the wood rail:



step 5:
double check the foam to make sure it attached all the way around the rail
here, the foam did not have enough glue, so i sprayed some more to this section and then pressed it together:

step 6:
begin trimming excess foam off of rail
i like to use a foam saw like this one with the foot removed:



you can also use an electric carving knife to trim the foam.
if you do not have access to a foam saw, or carving knife, you can use a razor blade to trim the foam.
you will have to use a couple of razor blades though, because the glue will build up quickly
on the razor blade and make it dull....



foam trimmed off of rail:



be sure not to throw your trimmed off foam onto the floor, it still has glue on it and can stick to your floor.
you then end up trying to pull chunks of foam stuck to your floor....



step 7:
begin spraying glue to the inside radius of your rail:



step 8:
cut the center portion foam out of your rail with a razor blade:





step 9:
cut strips into the foam where the rail curves on each end:
this will allow for the foam to flex when you begin applying it to the wood.



step 10:
begin applying the foam to the inside radius of the rail.
the strips that you cut should look like this:



finished picture:



step 11:
trim excess foam off of inside radius:



finished rail:



if you have a rail with cup holder cut outs, you will need to cut the foam out of each cup holder hole:





all done!

Instead of all that extra work, why not just use a guide to cut the foam the correct distance out from the rail edge and then when you wrap the vinyl it automatically will form around the rail edges without all that extra gluing and cutting? That's how I do rails. EZPZ
