I don't like the bow type either. I made one for my last car. What I did is used a mid 70's headliner, the coated cardboard type and covered it with new style headliner material. This was not hard and the side trim and the dome light held it up no prob. It also yielded more head room. If you needed more support a couple blind plastic auto press in retainers would work fine. This type of headliner board is easy to come by or maybe you could rob one out of another car like I did.
