Default Headliner help with a sunroof?

I'm planning on putting a sunroof in my 96 supercab. I pulled down the headliner and saw that the ridge going down the middle is because of a brace in the roof. I know this is just so the roof doesn't buckle if someone stands on it or something. I was wondering if I put in the sunroof and remove the brace, how to work around that ridge in the headliner. will I have to make some kind of spacer ring to go around the rest of the inside or could I just clamp the ring down and force it flat?

here is the headliner board for my reg cab cut out for the sunroof:

new, uncut:

cut:


in the truck with the sunroof in:


I ended up dropping $250 for an abs plastic headliner board as the oem ones are a soft, fiberboard that falls apart very easily after they are cut up. my original one fell apart, bought another one from a jy, it fell apart, so i finally dropped the coin for one that won't.

when it comes time to cover the board, it'll come out, be glued around the edges, wrapped over and glued down, then the center goes in with a rubber strip to hold it in place around the opening. here is a pic of it before the new board/interior colors.

they do make an abs ext cab headliner for 93-97 as well. may be worth it if you run into problems with your board being flimsy.
