Changing walls

I'm thinking about changing the walls out on my 1972 AS to composite paneling. I have to replace all of the insulation and was thinking about hanging new walls. Has anyone ever done this?

One can hang anything they like over top the existing sheet metal liner sheets - the outer/inner layers riveted into many structural 'boxes' across the ribs and bows give the shell its rigidity & strength. It's the zero-stretch of sheet metal with the microscopic give of rivets & pop-rivets that keep everything happy...
