I'm not good for DIY, so please be indulgent : Pay more attention to the idea than the result ;)

 

This is a 5" x 8" tin box, used to present the advance parts needed for precaution.

first difficulty is to cut the emplacements, not easy with soft foam.

Ive been told that foam can hold moisture so check your parts once in a while for signs of rust.

Just buy a pack of Zerust plastabs and keep one underneath the parts.

Possibly soak the foam in oil?
