looking for input.

Im considering covering the wall above the sink and stove in my 24foot minuet. The material that sticks out is Foil Mca from Wilsonart. I feel that if I use screenroom kickplate channel{anodized aluminuium} at the top and bottomto hold the edges, I can use the spice rack and the window screen garnish to hold the center tight to the wall. If the holes for the rivits and screws are drilled to 1/4 inch will the normal side wall flex of the minuet tend to crack the mica? If any one has thoughts on this or other ways to renew this wall let me know.
Thanks, Curt
