I saw some pictures awhile back of a guy who straightened out a wire 
coat hanger and put a small (maybe 1/2") 90 degree bend in the end.  
Then attached the straight end to an electric drill to get the foam out 
from the inside.  It really worked cutting the foam out.  Seems like 
that foam was a bad idea to have in there in the first place.
