Not sure if it's the right stuff but worth looking at the Warehouse at their hollow pool noodles!

found this in the LVVTA
2.4(9) A low volume vehicle fitted with a roll-bar or
a roll-cage, must have:
(a) a head restraint fitted to provide protection for each
occupant where a roll-bar or roll-cage section exists immediately
behind a seat, positioned between the occupant seating posit
ion and the roll-bar or roll-cage section; and
(b)
no unprotected hard or sharp bracketry including a roll-bar or
roll-cage mount, seatbelt mount, or fastener positioned where it
would be likely to be contacted by an occupant in the event of
an impact or roll-over; and
(c)
all sections of a roll-bar or a roll-cage positioned adjacent to any
A-Zone must be covered in a high density energy absorbing material which:
(i)
meets SFI specification 45.1 or another equivalent
motor-sporting specification; and
(ii)
is not less than 15 mm in thickness in the area facing the
occupant cell.

Racetech in Lower Hutt has rollcage padding. They've got an online shop. They also list it on TradeMe.
