Get one of our big cans of contact cement. You will probably need it all and then some later on. A small piece of scrap foam makes an excellent disposable squeegee applicator. You should also pick up something to sand with like 36 grit sandpaper or a rasp, and you will also need something to cut with.

Dragon skin is good stuff for sanding, but it costs a few bucks. You can glue the sandpaper to something like a fat pen or a minicel scrap to make an inexpensive shaping tool if you are trying to save a few bucks. If you are willing to spend a few bucks, drop the coin on a rasp. This is a tool for scraping wood and at around $6 is is worth it if you are doing a lot of outfitting.

Hacksaws and hacksaw blades with duct tape wrapped around one end as a handle make good cutting tools for foam that leave a smooth surface behind. You can also scrape the blade against the foam to use it as a sanding type tool.

The short knife size saws are great for cutting blocks quickly and scraping rough sanding work.

If you are lucky enough to know someone that has a band saw, these are the ultimate. They make sweet smooth cuts quickly. Watch your fingers!
