stormrider full HIC front panel question...

    Hey folks,

    maybe an awkward question:

    I got a stormrider full front HIC Panel (flexible) and after it was collecting dust the last years I'll pick my a** up off the ground and start DOING something.

    Now: In my mind I start building the box, making the frame...and in order to attach the HIC panel I should (?) back the flexible HIC panel up with a solid woodden panel as a base. In other words: mounting a woodden plate (not too thick because of weight but firm and stable enough) to the frame in order to give the frame it's stability and the flexible HIC panel to hold something against.

    My question: assuming the raw wodden box is placed horizontally...and I lay the flexible HIC panel on the wodden one - this creates small empty spaces between the flexible panel and the wooden one because the backside of the flexible HIC panel is not even.

    Maybe this is not an issue generally but I want the flexible HIC panel to sit evenly on the box.

    I notice it when I lay the flexible panel on the flat ground in my room.

    Because it's not even on the back (this is normal due to the casting / pouring process I understand that) you can slightly poke your finger on it and it yields just a little bit.

    Bottom line: Problem is that I want all the flat areas on the flexible HIC panel to just really sit flat and EVEN for the sake of optics...

    Hope it doesn't sound confusing...anyone has a solution to that? I once thought to put a soft medium between the flexible panel and the stiff woodden panel in order to kind of being able to manipulate the flexible panel to sit really straight, even and flat...
