Upper door wont fit..questions!!

Okay guys so I @&$%#£ up...I bought a upper window for my half door off eBay because the current one I have now, the zipper came off the track, the stitches came off the track, and my window will not close, ever. So I talked to the previous owner and he said its a best top soft top. I obviously bought the wrong kind.... It doesn't fit.. CURRENT



JUST BOUGHT. (Sorry it's upside down.)

But the question is now..I need to buy another upper, can anybody distinguish the actual brand of my current upper so that I do not buy the wrong window...again. Thanks everybody!

I'm thinking the reason they don't fit is because they were the soft uppers that mated to soft bottoms.. Or the guy you bought them from shipped you soft uppers for a YJ..

What about it doesn't fit if you don't mind me asking? and the upside down one remoinds me of a pavement ends, they always have their stitching showing everywhere.

They'll line up with the holes on my half door and they'll go in, but not all the way. The hole closest to the hinge will go all the way in, but the slant of the door and the slant of the upper just do not match.

I stuffed it into my door to make it fit and my door will close, but not all the way, the loop that touches my soft top will stick out.

They just all around do not matchup with my top or door. He agreed to refund my money but I think I'm going to see if I can sell it on eBay for a few bucks more...

And in the mean time and ideas where I can get my window fixed?? The zippers off the track and so is the stitching that's connected to the track itself, just a fabric shop??

An upholstery shop should have the right stuff.
