Yeah, I've heard of that. Also I've heard of Viagra as use to prevent altitude sickness, and from what I've heard, it works.

They have to be welded though don't they? I'm having trouble even finding the foam. I looked at Derek's pictures when he did it and got the part number off the foam, but it's almost as if it doesn't exist
