Depends on the car. They are all different. I made one for my 55 Chevy.
It involved 5 rods to hold it up, was quite complicated.

later models are easier.

Check some of the older posts on this subject. Yes it is not a job for a novice and some special tools are sometimes needed. Nothing worse than a bad headliner or top on an otherwise sharp ride.

Just got done!!!!!!!

I will agree with the others it is not an easy job and it depends on the vehicle.
But I will tell you this because I'm sooooo proud of myself. I had to make a headliner for my '46 Chevy Panel truck from nothing. I made the board from abs plastic sheets and formed it to fit. Then I just glued the headliner in place. I did get two wrinkles in it but they are in a place where they really look like they belong right in a corner. The original headliner went to the rear of the seats but mine goes full length from front to rear. I just got done not 30 mins. ago and it looks good so far This was the first time I ever tried anything like this, thats why I'm so happy with the way it came out. And wouldn't know the battery is dead on the camera so I'll post pics later.

Doc, get the book Custom Auto interiors by Ron Mangus. It's great! They use a chipboard or show how to make a hanging headliner in same book. The chipboard is laid in stapled or glued layer on layer then sanded with disc to smooth it(same as late model cars) Then the foam and fabric glued to the foam. Trick!! Book has lots of interior trick and ideas in it. Ray
