    I would use the spline tool to trace over that portion of the oval, then delete the oval. You can get pretty close.

    And now for something completely different.

    Golf carts are a popular neighborhood vehicle here in Florida, even though strictly speaking they are not street legal. I picked up this project cart for a song.

    Duplicate the oval, clear the texture from the copy and use Select Surface to create the dome. Click on Merge Additive. I would not use Merge Additive on the pattern as you have done.
