Soft top advice

I have an 89 YJ Islander edition. It was originally a soft top version with half steel doors. The PO removed all soft top hardware and put a hard top and hard uppers on.

I am wanting to get a soft top for the spring and summer but am very limited on funds. I really can only spend around 300.00 max. I probably can't get anything new for that price since I need the following:

Soft top and frame
Soft upper doors and frame
All hardware to attach to Jeep (I know if I go factory hardware, I need the pieces that go down the side of the windshield frame, but does the bestop supertop with soft uppers require these?)
Retaining channels for doors

I keep checking craigs list but can't find exactly what I am needing so far. Any other ideas? Does anyone on here have what I am looking for?

My buddy got a brand new Bestop Supertop for his CJ-7 (same for a YJ) with all the hardware and bow assembly for $200. The only thing it didn't come with was front uppers for the half doors. He found it on Craiglist.

Believe it or not my buddy bought it in the town where I live. He lives 45 minutes North of me. I have the exact same softop only mine is 10 years old and raggedy. Imagine how jealous I was when I found out. Then again he didn't have a top for his jeep at all.
