So, was checking out the automotive department at Wal Mart, like I do every time I am there.
(Like no one else here does, right?)
So, I find these great little things called saggy stoppers. Nice name.
Basically, they are tacks but a little longer and they are like mini corkscrews. The end is
clear-ish so they don't look too bad.
You get 8 in a pack for $2.64. Not bad. I bought one pack, I'll probably grab one more next time I am there. Seem to work pretty well though.
SO, for less the $6.00, it'* a pretty decent temporary fix if you don't have the $30 - $40 or the time to do it right.

Also when you get the Headliner fabric you need/want get it in 1/4 inch thickness...

Getting the head liner out will be a bit tricky on your A Body... You will have to bend and flex it without breaking it... You will need to remove the Trim from the A, B and C pillars.... Not sure about the A Body attaching points tho..

When you install the material to the board be sure to overlap the board a bit... Take your time and you will have done a great Job
You could steam it to help it bend enough with out stressing to much that is snaps.

Yeah, I don't know that I would want any one to use these on a Bonnie, but I think it works great for my $300 ride.

I kinda doubt a steamer would help since the board is made out of fiberglass material. I heck i dunno though. Sag stoppers have been in our Olds for years.

And if i had to take the headliner out again, I'd take the door off again.

I had an 89 Celebrity with the 2.8 & its headliner was stapledů Not many ever noticed; many good times with that little car.
