If you have an early '59 then you need to cut the pad to make it fit the metal dash. The only other option is to find a metal dash from a late '59 or '60. Then you can fit the pad without cutting. I've never seen a replacement dash pad with too little foam. Usually it's just the opposite. When you fit and glue the dash brackets to the pad most of the foam needs to be removed so I'm not sure what you mean by too little foam.
