    I'm tracking down roll bar padding with summer on the way and I'm leaning towards SOR's since it comes with a cover.

    But I have a 72 (stock) and SOR only sells padding from 9/73-9/77 and later.

    I measured the bar earlier and it's close to 2 inches around. Will the 9/73-9/77 fit?

    Is there a difference between the 9/73-9/77 roll bar circumference and that found on my 72?

    Or did the actual shape of the roll bar change after 72?

    If either one is the case, any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Yep, no factory roll bar 'til the '74 model year.
