putting foam sheets together

Unread postby ukimok » Thu Apr 23, 2015 10:19 pm

So the cover pad on our pit at school is all foam pieces, most are about 4'X5' and they are constantly getting mixed up and bundled. I'd like to take them all out and connect them and I think this can be done by gluing them together with an epoxy or something but I'm not sure. Anyone done this?

Also, I have a rip in one of the large back pads on the top edge. Can this be repaired in place or do I need to take the foam out of the vinyl cover and take it somewhere to get repaired? I am guessing I can get it fixed cheaper if I take it out because my options of who can repair it will be better but is the foam like impossible to get in and out.

Any help is appreciated
