The foam backing to my headliner (perforated vinyl naugahyde type material) has deteriorated and the headliner is falling. I tried to tack it back up with 3M spray adhesive but the foam is turning to dust and it won't hold. I'm trying to decide what to replace it with. Does a headliner like this add any sound absorption to the cabin? If not, I'm thinking of just painting it. I've also seen a sound-absorbing paint for the bilges - not sure how that would work in a cabin though. If I should replace with a similar perforated vinyl, any suggestions for sources?

Where do you get the plastic beadboard and what did you use to glue it to your overhead? I like the look

Headliner

Bead board looks great but I didn't want to add the weight so I went with the traditional headliner. Also needed something to contain the db. Some day I figure out how to post pics on this site:rolleyes:
