You should be able to buy a spray can of fabric/upholstery adhesive, spray it down and put it back in place. I've done that with the material on my Evo, holding up well 8 months later.

For the edge, use a credit card to tuck the material into the crevice.

Peel back the headliner in the affected area and use some adhesive spray. Try and get something that's designed for headliners.

cheap fix: headliner/carpet spray adhesive:

more expensive fix: replace the panel. They're usually cheap from a facebook group for your car (people parting crashed/broken cars), or you can spend a little more

Headliner material is very thin so any heavy adhesive will bleed through. THought I heard of one available at craft stores that is very good and does not bleed through fabric.

Maybe something specific for it like:

I would scrap off the foam. I would worry about the long term adhesion if you don't.

Use the 3M spray. 3M 38808 Headliner and Fabric Adhesive - 18.1 oz.

Also, get some sort of roller to smooth everything out.

Thank you! So I just removed everything, the dash lid and the center console lid; fortunately they both had a separate section underneath that could be unscrewed where I was able to tuck away the excess fabric. I cleaned it really well with 99% isopropyl alcohol (this discolored the vinyl or whatever it was, so if you intend on taking it off and going back to stock I would advise to maybe just use dish soap). I found the fabric I wanted - Pendleton wool which is a high quality wool from the Pacific Northwest if you haven't heard of it. Since it is constantly exposed to sun, I would advise going with a higher quality fabric in hopes it would minimize fading quickly. After cleaning the area, I used Elmers Craftbond Adhesive but if I do it again I would use something stronger like a 3M product... maybe even 3M Headliner and Fabric Adhesive. Spray that over the large surface area where you will be applying the fabric, you have a little time before it sets so spray and apply your fabric but get it centered and positioned where you want rather quickly --- this is the time you will also want to stretch it out to avoid ripples in the fabric. Finally I used a hot glue gun but any craft Adhesive would work to secure the fabric corners and edges that were tucked away under the cosmetic area -- again I was able to unscrew a plastic piece where I applied the hot glue/adhesive to secure the fabric better. I cut away the excess fabric and screwed it all together which also helped make the fabric taut. Be generous with the initial aerosol fabric adhesive on the cosmetic side - depending on how thick the fabric is you might want to be careful to not soak a thin fabric with it. I used enough that I could slightly feel the adhesive through the wool but it didn't affect anything. The corners were tough, but I let the spray adhesive dry and it allowed me to pull on it to make it a lot more taut which got the ripples out as well as letting me square the edges and apply the hot glue. Sorry for making this super long - I might be making it sound difficult, but it actually was really easy to do. Shit now that I think about it, I used some forum walk through to do it - I'll try to find it and post an edit with it.

Edit: fixed links and added walk through I found on a Subaru forum, he used seat fabric from an STI but go to any fabric store and pick out your own! You could probably also add a foam layer in between to pad your elbow - I'm sure you could also find that at a fabric store or even Amazon. My next project is actually to go to my wood elf father in law and make a modified center console lid and then wrap that with Pendleton wool, I want to add a cup holder and a few other things - maybe an area to stash my CB and some camping gear.

There are probably some “store brands” in the auto parts stores, but be sure it’s a heavy duty headliner adhesive.
