I did something similar to David for my aft fuselage. I made some plywood pieces to perform as a platform. What you can't see in the attached pics is that I put pieces of 1" foam insulation from HD aviation supply under the plywood.
This worked out great.

For the seat area where I have to climb in I use a combination of Harbor Freight moving blankets and 1" boards to distribute my weight. I used some of the old crate wood for these pieces. I put a moving blanket on the seat pan, then the boards and then another moving blanket. That way I'm protecting my seat area and the plane's.
