Thanks, I tried gluing strips to my van twice and didnt have much luck both times but it turned out to be a blessing that it didn't. I ended up utilizing the flat strips that were built into the top as a place to put my support and just used 2x4s and some alum angle to make roof supports and thats what my panels are attached to. You'll see in the picture attached. Nice thing about this is it supports the weight of the top but isnt attached to the top so flexing shouldnt be an issue.
I am going to just make an L shaped piece or trim to cover those edges and it will also make it easy access for wiring.
Edit - Its hard to tell in these photos but the 2x4 comes straight down to meet with that unfinished edge of the roof and the panels I made cover that edge.
