I do like the idea of a product that can be poured on rather than sprayed on. I think something with a loose consistency would be more beneficial. I I think by pouring a substance on would give you better workability, if that makes any sense.Expanding foam is used in the car audio scene to fill empty areas to reduce rattles, and insulate sound. Typically it's made of 2 parts you mix and then pour into the areas you are trying to fill. I can't put much input into how a headliner would go
Darrin,If you have the existing backing board, you could use it to make the reverse mold with the fiberglass, then you could use the foam to create the new shell,
I think someone still offers a bow style conversion. It would look good if done right.This is another reason to miss the original J.C. Whitney. Ages back they used to sell bow style headliner kits to replace the foam board. I still believe the bow style is better than what we have. Wish I bought one back then.

nice thing about a mold, is you can fill/sand the inside of the buck... I actually have the original backer for my 2dr regal, I patched the cracks/holes with spray adhesive and thinner cereal box cardboard. I guess I've held on to it for all these years hoping to do just this... I had found a better board at a junkyard a few years back (just thinking back, it's been more than 8 years, before I started my current job) and recovered it, and it hangs flat, supported from the back bedroom ceiling ....Darrin,
I thought about that, but the backside of my existing headliner has a couple repair areas that are a little lumpy, which I feel wouldn't make for a nice mold.. I would think that It would be preferred to start with a board that's smooth and never been repaired. I know that sounds optimistic.
