Defender hard top fit

Newbie here just bought a 1986 Defender 90 Mod without a top and have been looking for a hard top. So far there have been a couple leads but nothing super close to Utah or close to my budget. I found this one on craigslist in Pennsylvania and I like the price just need to get it shipped but want to know if it even will fit my new truck. Here is the ad:

http://pennstate.craigslist.org/pts/4358058485.html

The 90 Mod is not in my possession yet so i couldnt measure things out but
The owner of the hard top gave me these dimensions for the top:
Total length: 80"
Width at top: 57.5"
width at bottom: 60"
Length from windscreen to start of side section: 27"
Length of side section: 53"
Height of side section: 20.5
Note that all dimensions are rounded and are not taken at bolt holes (i.e, the full dimensions including overhangs, trim, etc.

Also if someone could tell me what other parts are missing that I would need....hardware, rear door glass etc.....I really dont know much about these just know they look cool and I want to restore one. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance to anyone that decides to take on this challenge.
Nate

The windscreen/roof is different on a series so it wont fit. Defenders have a taller windscreen and a roof that matches it. You can see what i mean in these pictures, the defender windscreen extends past the height of the top of the doors



You guys beat me to it
