    Here's a close up of an original 71/72 pad. Black horse hair is on the back side.

    Here's a close up pic of an original late 73 pad. There was a change at some point in 73 I believe.

    If you do another run and I can get you to not cut out the hole for the shock on the right side I'd buy a few. Thanks, -Scott

    That's not what was used in January of 72. The horsehair backing would have been prior to that I believe.

    Yea probably, my 72S was built in 7/71. Very early. I've done more research on this subject then I'd care to admit. I've been taking pics of the original untouched cars I get to reference stuff like this. I have pics of an original T built 5/71 and it's the same as the 71/72 pic I attached.

    Which pad works for a early '73 built in 10/72?
    Am I better off with Appbiz Pad or the pad referenced in this thread?
    I know neither is 100% accurate just trying to get as close as I can.
    Help appreciated as always....
