The price of foam pads is just plain stupid! $150+. Si I found these unused 3" camper mattresses.
They (the upholstry shops) were just as stupid! $180-$250 to shorten and sew. So...
After all, I was a Boatswain's Mate............
Stuff it all in cut down, Zippered Futon cover
A spare piece makes a great backrest
Kitty like it

ADDED A DIAGONAL "L" PIECE. USED THE DOUBLE SIDED TAPE.
FIRST TRY.................ALL MY LEFT OVER ALUMINUM SHEET. COVERED IT WITH A GOOD MESS OF ROOFING PASTE. MESSY, UGLY, WRINKLED, DARK.
STRIPPED IT OFF. STARTED OVER. USED THE REMAINDER OF THE 1/16" WHITE SHEET USED ON DOORS. TIGHT, LIGHT AND TRANSLUCENT.
HAD A STRING OF FREE SOLAR LED (HARBOR FREIGHT) ROPE LIGHTS. SEALED THE FACEPLATE AND SWITCH TO WATERPROOF AND TIE WRAPPED SO THEY RIDE SOLAR UP DRIVING, LIGHT GALLEY DEPLOYED.
WHEN POLISHING, USE POLISH SPARINGLY. MOTHERS ALUMINUM IS GOOD BUT I USED MEQUIARS LIGHTEST. 9 INCH LOW PRESSURE ORBITAL WAXER. DIDN'T WANT SUPER HIGH GLOSS: TOO MUCH UPKEEP AND BAD HEADLIGHT REFLECTION GLARE FOR OTHER MOTORISTS.
A GREAT PRODUCT FOR CLEANING AND APPLYING A NICE MATTE-TYPE FINISH IS NEVER DULL. IT'S TREATED COTTON POLISHING WADS IN A CAN. USED BY LOTS OF AIRSTREAMERS AND ALUMINUM POLISH PLANE BUFFS. JUST ABOUT RIGHT SHINE. EASY TO STORE. WALMART
