Tin Ceiling

Hello Everyone! I am a new Airstream owner and wanted to ask if anyone has installed a tin tile ceiling or even a faux tin tiled ceiling. If so, how did you install? I have only been able to find one posting for this when I googled it...they used contact cement on both ceiling and tiles and then went back and used rivets secure.....has anyone else installed these? Tips?

I’ve never done it, nor would I, but rivets would be the way. Unless you want to catch a buzz, I see no need for contact cement.
