@ProjectPete So...bring in Perth too...the mason army nails just get hammered into the bricks??
I’ve heard of them, but not used them.
That's right @Miss-pink - they're designed to secure timber to brick/concrete so you just hammer them in being mindful of not damaging your timber panels as the nail is nearly all the way in.
However, a little reset is probably in order. @Jason I should probs create a new post on this so it's not so hard to find - thoughts?
Given each piece is lightweight the best way to affix them to the wall is simply with Instant Nails (Selleys and Sika have the best products IMO) and 20mm nails using a nail gun as the nails are just there to help hold in place while the liquid nails cures.
These panels are a fair bit heavier so you affix them with the same Instant Nails plus masonary nails. But to make the job easier/cleaner to finish (ie. reduce patchwork and sanding) just get masonary nails in at the top to stop the panel falling off the wall then nail gun the rest with 15mm nails.
In both cases tap the panel all over with a rubber mallet to ensure the liquid nails grabs to the wall. When I apply the Instant Nails I do a few circles to act like suction caps then squiggly lines in the other spaces.
Hope this helps :smile:
