Looks great! A few questions....

1. Did you use the hotwire technique found on arfcom, and if so do you have any problems with sticky edges where you made the cut?

2. Any problems with surface rust?

When I was 12 or 13, we had this hot blonde babysitter that was about 17 or 18.
We used to pull her swimsuit top off when she was in the pool.
Good times... :D

You know I actually just followed the directions.

1. Place item on Foam.
2. Trace item with chalk (I used a wax pen which I still have to clean off)
3. Remove item.
4. Retrace line a 1/4" inside of original line.
5. Then Cut out. Direction recommend a 8" blade. ( I used a bare razor blade)
(6.) Trim as necessary

They wont be in the case long enough to build any surface rust. But if there is or will be a problem I will just throw in a silca pack.

I find using a lighter to heat up the razor blade adds to the ease of cutting.

The title threw me. I was expecting some hot au pair from Sweden.

I bought the Pelican from City Arms, I paid more than online but less than retail. Online they are going from ~$175

I used an electric carving knife when I cut the foam in mine. Worked great.

LOL, I was waiting for someone to go there.

Joe, did you have to buy new foam? I got egg crate style foam in mine.

The best part was when you jump out of the pool and run around the yard while she's chasing you, trying to get it back.
She kept wearing two piece suits though.
We always figured she would just start wearing a one piece.

Cool. I have the same case and love it.

So tell me this... After you cut along your lines, what about the bottom? Is it layered foam, say an inch or two thick, or do you have to cut the bottom out as well? Seems like it could be hard. I had always assumed to use the pluck foam for such a project...even though it'd not look as cool.

The bottom foam is two pieces. The top piece is about an inch and when its cut then you just spray glue it to the bottom piece. It wasn't hard at all.
