Default Tudor top

Does the foam on the top cover only the chicken wire or does it continue over the sheet metal to just above the rain gutter. Thought I remember seeing top installation instructions somewhere but cannot remember what book they were in.

What year Tudor?

As Mitch said, don't use foam. It won't look right, and it will break down with heat and time.

Also, do not apply the cotton batting directly over the chicken wire, it will work through the wire, and if mice get into the headliner they will have a field day with the cotton. Use a layer of duck cloth under the cotton. You can get it at a fabric store.
A good set of instructions can be found on Marco's site:
