Default Helmet Foam Reline???

Is there any service that can replace the rotted-out foam in a Bell R/T full face helmet??? I read Rush's thread but can't find the soft-spongy foam rubber padding locally. All I can find is the black stiff-spongy stuff like in floor pads.

I'm not too confident of my ability to re-foam a helmet and get it right the first time.

Bell won't re-foam old Bell helmets.

Looking for a service, I don't mind paying a few bucks to get it done right.

I've also seen someone on chopper cult that was doing it for people I think.
