    I have the ceiling down to the old foam and it appears to be no water damage. While removing the old ceiling the Styrofoam is now not smooth. I'm thinking of putting wall paneling on the ceiling. Would this work and if so, what adhesive should I use?

    It looks great. I'm using a wood paneling. How did you put your cross beams up? My ceiling is sagging a bit.

    The crossbars bolted into brackets on the side. They are the braces for an optional a/c

    KRash that looks GREAT! Nice job. It took only a weekend? Or one weekend to remove the old gunk, plus another weekend to put on the new?

    It took a couple hours to take apart the old ceiling and gunk.. it came out pretty easy. I did it on a friday night, and was completely done with the project by sunday night. With the frp boards being thinner than the original it slid into the roof channels fairly easy.

    So you didn't have to un-bolt and re-bolt the cross pieces? That would help a LOT.

    I took the cross pieces out completely, I dont know how your system works but mine is just 4 bolts and the bar comes out. it only weighs about 20 pounds. if it works the same way you can prolly just loosen the 4 bolts and once it separates just push it out of the way

    I think my cross piece may have pop rivets instead. I don't like pop rivets. Have to hacksaw them off, they won't loosen like a bolt.
