Here are the materials mentioned in this video. They are affiliate links.

Sponge Neoprene Stripping: https://geni.us/fWMY
(Get 1/2 to 1in wide and 3/8in thick. Also get one that has 1/8in thick for more flexibility to experiment with different thicknesses. Remember you can layer them one on top of another)

Double Sided Tape (If you plan on using the insert foam): https://geni.us/7xiPt

how much do you like the g2 vs 8kx so far

I did a similar mod but using a ~20mm vive face cushion I had lying around. The fov went from ~85 degrees to ~100 https://www.reddit.com/r/HPReverb/comments/ju4xix/increased_fov_mod/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3

Where did you get this vive face cushion from? Is it the right size? And how did you attach it to the headset?

They’re on ebay from China, such as this one https://www.ebay.com/itm/22MM-PU-Leather-Face-Foam-Replacement-Eye-Pad-Cushion-Cover-for-HTC-VIVE-Headset/133547380396?hash=item1f180b4eac:g:HLEAAOSwWqBfiAA2. For now I just used rolled up tape but you could also use velcro stickers

They dont ship to Canada, so I found an alternative product that has 18mm, 12mm, and 6mm foams. 3 pack.
