Replacing a headliner

I replaced mine with an FRP panel from Home Depot. It worked, but aesthetics leave a bit to be desired. It would have been perfect if I''d found a panel which had a smooth finish. The only panels I could find had a pebble finish on the glossy side and a flat matte finish on the other side. I mounted with the matte finish showing which wasn''t ideal as that side has some imperfections.

Does anyone know of a source of FRP panels with a smooth finish?

The prior headliner was wood with a thin vinyl covering. Water had leaked from a hatch and destroyed a part of it. The FRP panel was slightly thinner but that wasn''t a problem.

Foam backed vinyl wouldn''t have worked on my boat as the headliner is separated from the fiberglass deck by 1/2" plywood strips so that hardware can be bolted through the deck. Without the spacer the bolts would show.
