Did you ask about “Fabrication Billet?” It generally comes in larger sizes and is cut to size by the distributor….

Hi Janich78,

Appreciate you posting this.

Also searching for blue foam.

The foam that ACS sells is 16"x8" XPS PIB (eXtruded PolyStyrene Pipe Insulation Billet); I don't think the main wing can be done in one piece (the largest piece has an ~18" chord).

I spoke to Polyguard (XPS PIB manufacturer); one of their distributors is Bay Insulation (I searched, there's a branch in Phoenix).

When I talked to Bay Insulation, they were out 2 months ago (PNW) and the sales rep said that they were having supply chain issues and were keeping what PIB they had for internal projects. YMMV.
