Hi Steve,

I bought a bunch of pocket-door railing from the local hardware store and cut it up into 4" pieces. You can see them on the above pictures of one of the ceiling boards. I put eight 4" pieces on it. I'm going to put 8 4" pieces (in the opposite direction) on the ceiling as well using toggle bolts to hold them up there (because I have two layers of drywall on rails, so it's just emptyness back there):



Then to hook the panel on, I just lift it up slightly to the side of its final resting place (like 1/4") and hook it onto the pieces up there. I'll put some pink stuff on top of it so it doesn't act like a big drum up there. I think it will be pretty solid. I've tested it and I'm able to lift the entire panel from just one of those 8 pieces, so I think it'll be fine.

So the two edges of the chanel overlap, no mechanical fastening?

No mechanical fastening, no. But there isn't a lot of wiggle room and the panels are heavy, so I think it's going to be fine. The rails basically interlock and prevent anything from moving.
