If you go through the hassle of removing the headliner from the car, take the material off and clean the old glue and dried out foam off of the backer board. If the liner material is bad it can be replaced for about $35-40 at any fabric store like Joann Fabrics. If you're gonna do it, do it right the first time.

And when you do get it together make sure you use the right adhesive, 3M makes a headliner adhesive, it works great, I used it on a customers car 2 years ago and the headliner is still bonded. I've used it on door panels, sound deading material, it's great stuff.
