Can the Mohawk be fitted by itself without the rest of the roof, and if so where did you get it?
Thanks,

Yeah, but as far as the post above yours is concerned, this isn't able to be fitted by itself without the rest of the roof, unless I'm missing something.

Did this start as a full roof in which the “scallops” were cut out or did you create a mold to include the mounting points.
Thanks
