I used original type wood you can get here I got a roof kit that came with vinyl and sponge separate. I would recommend getting a type that is already together. I used a simple "hide em" strip to cover the brads around the edges. I did not use any chicken wire. Maybe I should have. I see the slats thru the vinyl. So I slid in some heavy cardboard from the inside between the slats and the sponge . That helped a lot.. I did not want the roof to sag so I had added metal angle iron to the wood cross braces. This meant that I could not nail into them for the headliner .
Then I used dynamat like material to hold everything on place.
Next I followed a coupe headliner thread to get the headliner in.
It was a lot of work but came out preety good for me.
