What top is this?

Can anyone tell me what vintage top and sides this is? It appears the side windows are a different shape than the typical D90 sliding glass. Or is that just my imagination? It came with the truck and is believed to be some sort of Euro top and rear door.

There are a bunch more pictures here if you are interested.

The side panel looks NAS but with a replacement single pane glass rather than the sliding, but i guess measuring the opening would tell if its differant. To me it looks about right.

The roof I cant really tell because of the sunroof and modification on the inside to accommodate the custom roll cage going on there as shown in picture #15 & 16.

The windows are similar in size, but the window corners (yellow circled) seem more rounded than the std NAS o me. I need to find a std NAS one and measure.

What is the bracket circled in red used for?

I dont know.. looks pretty close. Looks like you have an additional support or something there. The first pic here shows my NAS side. Teh corners of the glass dont look that far off to me but could be angles.

The bracket in the red circle is an attachment point for the top to the tub. You can see mine in partially in the fist pic but more in the 2nd.

Thanks Chris, your pictures help expain the proper mounting. This top was installed by people that had no clue...

The more I look, the more I am convinced the windows are a diferent size and shape. Bummer, I wanted to install sliders and use NAS trim on them.

Anyone have a pair of the correct NAS roof sides laying around they want to sell?
