    I've got my Metal-tech family cage all painted up and looking good. Jumped in to go for a putt and hit my head on the angle brace. Sooo before i give myself another knot, what are you guys/girls using for roll bar padding besides plumbing pipe insulation and tape ?

    You can get 'proper' rollbar padding. It's like the plumbing stuff, but has a thin section at the split and a thicker section on the other side. Easier to fit of your cage is close to the body :) But more expensive :(
    Should be able to get it at a race shop

    Plumbing supply or maybe even Home Depot or Lowes for Pipe insulation. It comes in long sticks

    Summit Racing has diferent colors for $3.95 a stick, free shipping. This is the asymmetrical type Andrew meant, and it has the advantage that it is more sturdy than the soft black stuff, which rips easily and is difficult to slit straight if not precut. Better than tape to hold it in place is velcro strips (unsticky and reusable, found in the computer cable section of office stores, Ace also has them, may have to order a bunch). Good luck.

    Summit also has the neat ones that stick on one side of the tube. That way you won't rip them off on trees and rocks, etc.
