This is what I am looking for and I will describe the best I can...

Pretend you had a piece of plexiglass that has pretty stiff, yet could conform to groves and less than 1/8" thick, and be able to be adhered to mdf.

What I am trying to do is fill in the area around where i am placing a ring. The hole in the door is too wide. I will have to cut some around the top, but in a left to right dimension, it is wider than the ring. I am looking for something I can place under the ring that will conform to all the edges and still be somewhat stiff.

My initial thoughts are to place a sheet of plexiglass with a whole cutout with dimensions slightly under the hole in the door....then use deadener on both sides to make sure it is sealed.

Is this a good method...would pics be better to describe what I am trying to do? Does such a product exist?

not sure what exactly you are looking for, but would non-hardening modeling clay work?

I guess that would work...I wonder how it would vibrate, but I can do multiple layers I guess.

It melts in my truck for some reason.

I would go this route but using hardboard instead of plexi. It's cheaper and easier to cut. Then you can glue it with Titebond to the MDF.
