Attaching wainscott paneling over sheetrock

I am doing my basement. I just completed the taping and joining of the sheetrock. Now I want to attach wainscott paneling to cover the bottom parts of the walls to approximately waist height. How do I attach the paneling to the walls? I used metal studs/framing so nailing doesn't seem to be an option. Thanks.

Depending on what you are using for wainscoating, application can be done with adhesive - Liquid Nails for panels is a good one that set's up quite fast. This makes the application easy. Too bad you didn't install horizontal wood blocking to do this at the top and bottom of the wainscoating height.

Happy New Year!
