Use SFI 45.1 spec padding only http://www.ogracing.com/eshop/home.asp?categ=175
pad the cage after you mount your seat and place the cage and harness so you can see the likely candidates for padding.
Hope that helps[/QUOTE
fatbillybob: Thanks for the link and the advices! If I get Paul to make me a "Holiday price" for his used roll bar I should have some money left to buy the padding
