Not only that, from the picture it looks like the new foam is wraped around the edge of the flap. I believe it create friction between the flap and the box, so the flap cannot move.
I whould give it another chance (after thanksgiving :chicken.
Try to reform the flap again. I will post a pic of the foam I used.
You can get it at Home Depot.
Oh, I thought the DIY indicated to wrap the foam around the edges to create a "seal" effect (i.e. to prevent air going around the sides). But what you say makes sense to me. I suspect the door is stuck, or not properly seated.

I sent the car of to my indie today, along with my pics and the DIY document. I hope they can sort it out. I'll let you know.

Again, thanks for your input, Meir. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
