Material quaility??

I'm working on putting the head liner in my '46 Chevy Panel and I've got a couple of questions since I've never done this before. I went to a couple of local shops looking at material today, they all have/use the same kind of material. The material they had was the foam backed headliner material. The one I got the best price($13.90 a sq yd) from had Sun Brite from Glen Raven. Its kind of like a soft valour cloth. Does anyone know if this is a good quality material?? I don't want to redo it in 2 or 3 years. The second question is just kind of an opinion thing to see if the colors are about right. The carpet is charcoal grey, the dash and upper console is burgundy, the floor in the back is a golden oak. Now the charcoal grey carpet goes about 1/3 up the sides in the back then there will be golden oak panels trimmed in a dark cherry, the doors will also have the cherry trim around the inner frames. There will also be an upper console from the windshield to about the back of the seats made of golden oak with a center console between the seats made of the same. Now I was thinking of a lighter grey for the headliner to contrast with the cherry wood but I was told that since the dash and upper console were burgundy to carry that color across the headliner. What do you folks think?? Grey or Burgundy??

Thanks for your answers/opinions

Grey headliner will lighten up the interior, burgundy will darken it.

Sun Brite is a good brand of headliner. When you say quality material, thats hard to answer. The foam they use on headliner material breaks down over the years (sagging headliners in newer cars). But quality for the headliner, yes. That probably made no sense.
