New bestop pads don't match sound bar.

My roll bar pads were fading and starting to look purple. I bought the Bestop replacement product. I was easy to install and looks great. The problem is my sound bar has a faded pad as well. There really isn't a way to change out the pad. So, I'm looking at getting a new sound bar. I've narrowed it down the the VDP products. Does anyone know if the upholstered model (792515) matches the best top material? Or would I be safer going with the textured black plastic one (792501)?

Upholstered: Vertically Driven Products 792515 - VDP Ultimate VI Upholsterd Overhead Soundbar for 87-02 Jeep Wrangler YJ & TJ - Quadratec

Plastic: Vertically Driven Products 792501 - VDP Six Speaker Overhead Soundbar in Textured Black for 87-02 Jeep® Wrangler YJ & TJ - Quadratec

The upholstered one looks better than the plastic one, i think the plastic one looks a little cheap.

Do you know if it's the tighter woven/smoother material like the Bestop stuff? Or is it kind of the larger pattern like the factory pads were?

I have no idea about that, i still have the stock soundbar but with new speakers in it, if all you want is for the pattern to match i suggest taking the padding off and throwing it in the washing machine with some black dye. I remember my sister did that with some of her clothes. So it should work fine i guess.
