Default Do the RV6,7, and 9 share the same tip-up canopy?

An airplane project I'm working on requires an RV6 canopy, I know the 14 and 12 are different than the 6 but wondering if the 6,7, and 9 share the same canopy. Are the tip-up and slider different canopies also? I don't know if they're the same glass and you just have to cut it for the slider. Thanks in advance!

The bubble is the same for tip-up and slider on the 6, 7, & 9.
The frame / system for the tip-up and slider is also the same on all 3.
