Default Landing gear bulkhead fooan sure is flimsy

I would have expected the landing gear foam to be denser than the other bulkheads, but it sure feels flimsy to me. Did anyone else have this impression or should I double check my foam order?

If you got it from ACS or Wicks and the part numbers checkout, it's probably OK. I checked some scraps I have; some pieces are more flexible than others.

However, it's the added glass and multiple reinforcements that give it strength. I wouldn't worry about it.
