Panelling

I was hoping to install some Georgia Pacific Wall panels in a room of my house, they are the 4 x 8 sheets. I was wondering if the sheets should be fastened using those 8 foot clips that hold one side of each panel, or if the seams should just be butted up as close as possible, nailed and filled in the holes. I do not want to paint the panels, obviously, so I would like it to look as finished as possible. Thanks in advance. ANy other tips for this project would be appreciated too.

If you're talking about standard wood paneling, best thing IMO is to use the vinyl trim "T" between the sheets & laminate it to the wall with liquid nails.

What's on the wall now? wallpaper, paint, painted drywall?

Thanks, the panelling is going over existing panelling, which is on drywall. I can find the studs I think, and I was going to glue it, and use finish nails to secure it, while using the T pieces to hold the seams together. Sound good?

You've got the right idea, when laminating products like this I make little circles with the glue, press the sheet into place & then pull it off just slightly & repress into place, the glue will suck it down pretty good and you just need a few nails per sheet to secure it until the glue sets.
