65 Grab bar

Got my dash pad back from just dashes it looks great. But grab bar is too close to pad can't even get fingers around bar. What am I doing wrong?

The padded dash option does protrude some into the grab bar compared to the non padded dash. I would say your new dash pad is just thicker than what the original one was, causing you this problem.

Pics? I have a padded dash on mine (original) and there is a ton of room to use the grab bar.

I would agree that the bar is mounted upside down
