Mounting a 270 awning with popup roof?

Hi,
I am thinking of fitting a (Alu-Cab) 270 awning. Normally they are mounted on a roof rack or loader. But my car has a popup roof so an aluminum section (above the windows and below the popup part) that may not hold the weight well.

Are there any special brackets or solutions to make it fit?

What do you mean ' to your frame'? Do have a a picture of it perhaps? The Alu-Cab 270 weighs 27kgs...

I have a pop top on an 80. I'll see if I can find a photo. It's easy enough to make a Bracket to spread load. 27kg isn't alot to be fair.
