Are you talking about foam backed fabric headliner material? If so, yes you can use that to make a headliner, but you would be better served to use a pre-made headliner to fit your car. They are not that expensive. Try www.kanter.com under upholstery for a headliner for your car. They are $150.00. Good luck, and ask more questions if you need to.

If you are talking about insulation or sound deadening materials, there are all kinds of them for every different budget. They can be applied directly to the roof before putting in the new headliner.

Try using the spell checker. It's located to the right of the submit reply button. It will make your posts a great deal easier to read and you'll get more responses.

It would be best to replace your headliner with a factory "bow" type headliner as one it would give you the best look but you would need the bow's ( that you kept right? ) Option # 2 would be a solid healiner center only that give a street rod look but takes alot of work and skill to pull it off. I would recomend that if you replace the headliner to use a ceramic insulation( Lizardskin) above the healiner as foil or jute insulations tend to fall down over time and leave marks in the material poking out. One more thing replace the windlace befor you put in the new headliner.
