Interior Hidden Fasteners

Has anyone used any sort of hidden fasteners when building their bus interiors? For my next project I would like to have some vinyl covered and also painted custom fiberglass trim panels but dont know how to fasten them without having holes or screws in the front of them.

Re: Interior Hidden Fasteners

I was thinking about this and even did a google search but that came up with a lot about deck fasteners. if its just trim and nothing load bearing then I would say try something like liquid nail or other bonding agent. but you would run into the problem if you had to remove it for whatever reason.

If it is permanent fixture, then I'd also say use Liquid Nails. However, if it's a panel you need to remove occasionally, then I'd suggest using industrial velcro. Six inch strips at each corner will hold the panels on tight, but still be removable when necessary without showing any fasteners.
