Anyone know of a cheap fix to glue that sucker back up? I was thinking of that spray glue, but I heard that it sucks. Any ideas??

I think it can only be replaced for any decent fix, try it though. Maybe some photo mounting stuff too.

Maybe some tacks the same color of the interior. Probably not the best looking solution, but could be fine until you get it fixed completely. But I heard that is a couple hundred dollars.

Heheh!! Yeah, haven't smoked in seven years!! If I open my sleak wallet right now, only the damn moths will fly out!!!

You know, I've done some stupid things in the past, but someone, before I bought the car, used good ol' duct tape all across the back headliner to stick it up to the back window!! I mean to tell ya, A LOT of duct tape. I saw that and went

I too suferred from "the sky falling" and I think I found the perfect solution. While I was in Wal-Mart picking up my Silver Stars, I found these things called Saggy Stoppers (I thought of giving it to some women i know at work but i thought twice about it). Anyway, I think they cost less than a couple of bucks for 8 of these thingy-ma-bobbers and you simply twist them into the parts of the headliner that are sagging and "Voila" instant headroom!!!

Yes, they are made of clear plastic so they blend in with the headliner but they are visable.

I'm trying to stay classy here
Classy? NO! Practical? Absolutely!

the cheap way
Thee Cheapest Way! I'm just giving you a temporary solution until you can figure out, or devise, a better way to solve this problem. I think someone posted a way of removing the old headliner and installing a new headliner through their front door. But the pro'* do it by removing the front windshield. I also believe that you can possibly use some sort of spray adhesive. Let us know what you decide to do.
