    Headliner sagging

    I'm told by a local upholstery guy that the reason that the headliner is sagging is because the fabric is separating from a bonded foam layer that is behind it. Says it can't be repaired and must be replaced. Unfortunately Ford no longer supplies the material for a truck that is 25 years old...
