Top Case Back Pad

Hello All,

I am looking to make a back pad for my OEM Top case this weekend. I've looked at the givi pads and they are what I am modeling this one after. I didnt buy one for a couple reasons. They are pretty pricey for a simple pad
($50-80), I don't want to drill into my top case. Lastly, its January and freezing outside (I'm looking for a little project).

My idea if to get some High Density foam, glue it to a small piece of thin plywood then put a cover over it, finally velcro it to the topcase.

Here's were I need help. I was wondering if anyone has made or purchased this kind of pad and could help me with how thick to make it. I am wondering how far out from the case this should extend to be comfortable for the passanger. Also did you put it on the above the hinge or below?
