Hello Nathan,

Here is what I did about 2 years ago:

Home Depot sells a 3/4" wide X 1/8" thick X 3 foot length piece of 
aluminum bar that is perfect for the job. This piece was secured to 
the backside of the headliner using common 2-part epoxy. I used 
several clamps to straighten out the bends and to make sure the 
epoxy had good surface adhesion.

The bar stiffens up the headliner and it will take a little 
fidgeting to get the outer edges under the side upholstery pieces.  
Slight pressure was placed on the aluminum bar to form it against 
the curvature of the roof. 

BTW, this type aluminum bar was what I used to fix my front fascia's 
eyebrows. It takes about 18" of bar length epoxied above each 
headlight to correct that problem. You will have to heat the fascia 
first to straight it out, then epoxy the bars in to make sure the 
eyebrows don't return.
