NMO 2 / 440 on plastic roof. Ground plane ?? N1AUP on 29/6/21
Hummm, my ROPS has a nice aluminum roof; no problems. :-)

However, either the hardware cloth or the 4 pieces of wire will work; been doing that for plastic roof cars. Also used thin aluminum sheet glued in place (works really well).

If you connected the "ground" side of the antenna base to the steel bar frame well enough, that would do it as well. Copper braid soldered point to point, maybe to more than one frame member.

Good Luck!
