No but several years ago I replaced my headliner with traditional vinyl headliner and wished I hadn't. I ordered it from Sailrite, usually a great supplier, but it mildewed almost right away whereas the old headliner, although damaged, never mildewed. I cleaned it, it mildewed right away again. I cleaned it again and sprayed with "mildew preventer" but by this time it was stained from the mildew. I'll have to paint it with mildewproof paint to make it right.
Next time it's beadboard for me and I'll paint it first.
