Is there a way to mask off the roof to spray the Vinyl Top colors with the BMF?

Yes, I recommend you use the sharp knife.

Would an X-acto knife work?

I like to use masking tape painted semigloss black for vinyl tops. You can use a few pieces just like the real ones and overlap them to make the seams stand up a little as the real ones do. Then just take some stretched sprue or some thin wire to make the chrome trim that surrounds the vinyl and secure it with a tiny bit of c.a. glue.

What size of styrene strips should I use to put on the roof car for the vinyl?

whatever looks right.
or you could find out the 1:1 measurement and scale it down.
