Unhappy DIYers help? headliner

Ok so here's the deal I was going to do the DIY for the headliner but it didn't turn out quite the way I wanted to and I don't think it'll last so I'm going a different route (fiberglass and paint). I'm not going to give false information So my question is should I post tips on how to/not to do this or is there no one who wants to do this? And if you do what do you want to know?

Are you planning on doing yours anytime soon? If not I'll post up all my know how and what not to do's and you can check it over to make sure I didn't mess any thing up or give false information.

I did try that but I never put it in the car. I knew it wouldn't work as soon as I sprayed it on there. I tryed a few other adhesives but nothing was working. I gave up and thought It would look better painted
