Another guy who doesn't know which top he has

Hey everybody! I'm looking to replace my top on my 95, but I have found my self lost figuring out which top I have. Now the frame assembly appears to be the same as the factory soft top, however, the soft upper doors are rounded, along with the part of the frame that touches the door. Also, it does not have the bestop style frame. Anyone know what I have? I can take pictures if needed. Thanks!

Take pictures of the outside and a few of the frame. Should be able to ID it from that.

yes, pics would definitely help

also, look at the plastic windows... most manufacturers emboss their logo (or at least their name) at the corners

very close, but above the door I have velcro that wraps around the frame, also my doors are round. I just found something on it that says "solvay draka inc.", does that mean anything to anyone?

Kind of an odd one. Looks very similar to factory hardware/bestop replace-a-top however those both come with squared corners. Also looks similart to Smittybilt but the window shape looks different than what they have in their instruction manuals as well as their using similar to factory snaps around the doors.

Looking at the pavements ends top, I think we have a winner. So I'm guessing there are no other tops that would work with that hardware, would there?
