Been there, done that! Had bad leak, stained the ceiling from the drivers side to passenger side along the cabinets. First thing, I found the leak, where cables from the sat. dish comes in, I will take responsibility for the leak, not enough caulking, it's fixed now. I tried everything to get stain out, nothing worked, the ceiling was sagging also.
Ordered up ceiling fabric, next, I took all the front and two side cabinet down. Cut a 38" section out with my new dremel zip saw. The stuff that the fabric is glue to is 1/4", more or less, pressed fibre board, (like cardboard). I beefed the ceiling up around the front cabinets with wood and glue, had to cut a channel in the styrofoam. Got 1/4" birch plywood, glued the ceiling fabric to it with headliner glue, fitted it back up with screws and glue, the screws are hiden under the cabinet lines. Made a wood divider to cover where I cut across, matching the factory dividers, and it looks like a pro did the job! I hurt my arm trying to pat myself on the back! LOL
