For large flat panels, like trunks, or anywhere I use plywood to "box" the area, I like to use my router to insert 1/8"x1" flat bar stock flush into the wood. Drill my clip holes in the stock, then drill a 3/4 hole in the wood for clip relief, screw or rivet the stock to the wood, use the auveco 10780 or 12134 clips into the stock. It sounds like a lot of extra work, but with some planning it really doesn't take that long and you now have metal to attach your panels to. I am sure there is a better way, but with care this method looks good when the panel is removed and it solves the problem, and avoids Xmas tree clips. I am interested to know how others are doing it.
