I own older vehicles and the headliners in a couple are beginning to sag. What is the best way to reattach it.

This is best handled by an auto trim shop. Remove the board and old fabric as a unit, have them glue on new stuff and install the new board and fabric yourself to save money.

You can buy material to do it yourself, but unless you're good at it, it will come down again.

You cannot save the old material as it has stretched and the foam backing rotted.

The cheapest way to "fix" it is with thumbtacks .

yea thumtacks

Thumb tacks work great I had a 86 Nova with headliner sag I went and bought some silver thumbtacks and tacked it up.If you space them nice it really looks good.Shop around there are many colors of thumbtacks from black to chrome.
