My wife went crazy and removed all the molded headliner, and I spotted some delamination and some leaks that we corrected
Now I'm trying to figure out how to finish the project, with something that looks decent, and we can handle
Simple - I didn't. The master line let some paneling hang low so I could trim it afterward to match the existing contour.
Note the master pencil line form the upper end of the plank. That pencil line IS straight.

This is looking amazing, what are you planning to use to finish that bottom. end of the ceilings (where the portlights are installed, I don't have any remaining wood, and I don't know exactly how to buy it :(

I have the original wood trim for the top and ends. For when I get to the bottom, there are various versions of outside corner trim molding.

The vinyl beneath the side decks was shot so is being replaced by PVC sheet which has beene waiting patiently in the shed:

Be sure that your choice of flat panel for under the side deck will not sag. This is common on other boats viewed. Even OEM's get this wrong sometimes.
Those teak moldings that cover the rows of staples and trim out the edges are expensive to replace. Treat them gently, and it broken epoxy back together. On our boat the teak batten that covers the bottom row of staples and fabric edge was designed to drop down about a quarter inch in front of the rolled-over vinyl just to provide a smooth transition to that long edge.

These FRP panels might be good for our boats. They are commonly used in RV construction. Easy to work with.

The installation instruction calls for gluing. Looks like you would need some backing to give it needed stiffness. Epoxied on battens, at the least.

The original teak is obtainable! I used 1/4 inch teak to repair around the large port in the head. It came out so good the best of the best wouldn't be able to tell it was done.

FWIW, Rockler has sticky-back veneers that can turn any piece of plywood into whatever wood you like, and they take varnish well and hold up fine. Good for small jobs, I use it a lot.
