Headliner.

If you are planning on replacing your headliner material use "DAP Weldwood Landau Top & Trim Contact Adhesive".
Nothing else compares or does what this does. It only comes in gallon cans.
https://www.fabricsupply.com/cart/product/show/5/Supplies---Tools/14/DAP-Weldwood-Landau-Top---Trim-Contact-Adhesive shows what to look for.
In some states this glue is illegal. The VOC content is to high. However, you just might be able to mail order this from a supplier who does not realize your state is off limits.
