Default Fitting Internal Bulkhead on ARF

I have a Top Flite Cessna 182 ARF, and am getting ready to install the internal cabin parts. One part that is the first to install is the rear bulkhead in the assembled fuse. Problem I have is shaping the part to match the internal shape. I am experienced at creating templates to aid in matching shape, but I normally have access externally. I have been doing searches, but am not finding any process or tips to follow. Any help will be appreciated.

nothing wrong with making a template out of a piece of thin balsa and using trial and error to get it right.

Thanks Carl,

That is eventually what I did, I used material like a 3"x5" card, but larger. I ended up pulling it out several times for adjustments and finally got it. I was hoping that there was an easier way, but didn't hear or find one. With the bulkhead back in the fuse and hard to get to, I just kept my patience and finally got it.
