Hard top strips removable?

Does anyone know the purpose to these, as to why they aren't just one whole roof?

Main question is are they removable. I'm getting Wayyy more Carbon Fiber than I need so I'll have plenty of spare to do these if they are.

Yes, and the painted strip in the middle comes with it--it's all one piece of rubber and it holds the center strip. Check the parts fiche.

They're there for the obvious bike rack lol.

Caymans and 911s have them too.

They pop off. Use a thin flat screw diver. There are some plastic clips inside that may break. Dealer has them not too expensive actually.
