I'm trying to fix up the original manufacturer's case for my Daion THE 80W and I could locate the guitar in it a LOT better if I had the guts of an hard foam case to cut up to make a padded liner round the body.

Has anyone in SE England damaged one of those foam filled semi-hard cases so that I could scavenge bits from it?   

I reckon that trying to make my own using injectable foam is likely to lead to a BIG mess!

I have done something similar with a fiddle case with expandable foam it worked really well, all you need is a bit of preparation and thought I wont bore you with how I did it unless you wish to attempt it yourself

Strip out all the old stuff
Wrap the instrument in the lining cloth
Wrap the instrument in heavy plastic making sure it is well sealed
Put balsa wood packers on the bottom of the case to lift and allow foam under
Lay a sheet of clear plastic large enough to allow the instrument in and more besides, over the case
Drop the sealed instrument into the plastic sheet
Using balsa wood packers centralize the instrument.
Bring the plastic sheet over the edges off the case and seal with masking tape
Put small holes in the sheet which should be quite taut
Blast the expanding foam through the holes making sure you can see it covering everywhere
Leave to set
Remove the instrument and then the plastic sheet the mould should now be complete, fill any holes in with cellulose putty
Trim and level up
Remove the instrument from its plastic and liner
Ensure it is a snug fit
Glue the liner in using a rubber based glue

The 2 pieces of thick plastic should give you enough clearance to get instrument in and out

You can cut bits out before covering for strings and things or put tins in as you mould

Hope this makes sense

Just steady away this worked fine on a fiddle but can't see it not working on a guitar
