Looks awesome! Great job. I'm definitely going to doing this.

One question. Is the board stiff enough to not need the screw in the middle to help support it?

Yes. I was going to use a piece of dual lock to hold up the middle but it is not needed. It is hard up against the center support.

Do you have the trim that would hold it in place? Lay it out like it is when installed (overlapped) and add 1/2" to 3/4" to the inside trace line.

I know this thread is old, but I was looking for headliner alternatives. Thanks for the idea.

How about coated hardboard like the kind used for bathrooms? Easy to clean and comes in pressed patterns like tiles.

Another material I spied were lightweight fiberglass sheeting used for backsplashes in restaurant kitchens. 'seemed to be flexible enough.

Use Abs plastic. One sides smooth, one sides textured. Trace your old headliner on to the abs, score it with a razor blade and snap the excess off. Use the textured side as the side facing down. Probably the easiest way if your not looking to finish it off with anything.

my truck is a giant piece of ***, but the original headliner is still up there and looking decent. decent being a relative term, in comparison to the rest of the truck.

I used a sheet of that corrugated plastic stuff. I picked up a 4x8 sheet for like $10 in black. Cut it using old headliner as guide and its mint. It looks really good

You need to buy 2 sheets of board because the Scab is like 54x56 or something like that. Basicly have to glue two sheets together.

If you dont have the original head liner, do you have the trim? You can lay out the trim and trace that then slowly cut it to fit. Another way is to measure the cab and cut the board larger and test fit/cut until you got it.

Thanks for this post. I am in the process of doing this now. I have the hardboard cut out and my wife is picking up the vinyl for me. Threw up some sound proofing in the roof yesterday to cut some of the tin can sound in the cab. Should clean up the interior nice.

BTW iirc the super cab is 50x52 or 54, so its proving difficult to find a sheet of something I could use without doubling up.
