Default Foam for shadowing toolbox drawers

I'm looking for some black foam in 1/2" and 1" thicknesses for shadowing tools. I can get some white stuff in town that I used in my workbox, but it would look crappy in my orange box I'm getting, I think.

Has anybody seen a decent source for this? I didn't see much on ebay.

You can buy 1/2" foam at Craft shops such as Joanns Fabrics.

I saw some thick foam floor mats at HF that looked suited for the job.

Damn. Usually I spot it right off when a newb tops an old post. This one had so few replies that I didn't catch it.

Wow, old thread. FYI, Wal-Mart blue camping mat works great for this, I found out.
