For the shield pink insulation foam is indeed a good way to go. I used a power sander to save time as it can be extremely labor intensive to slowly hand sand it down.

Paper mache is good but it will leave it slightly bumpy, I paper mached into bondo for an extremely smooth and shiny finish. You can also use fiberglass or other sandable materials but I recommend you find something for a finishing coat that can be sanded.
