Its not gonna be exact. Just make it flat against the roof. Your not gonna make it contour to every shape. Got any pics so we could see better??

you could always scribe it...put your mdf perpendicular to your curved surface, use a compass and find the widest point on your gap, now use the compass to draw your gap from one side to the other.

There are things called contour gauges.

Upload the picture to photobucket or something of that sort
