    like everyone else said. do not use gripfill!! awful for large sheets of shower wall... also that showerwall adhesive from toolstaion is quite possibly worse. ive been using stixs all, more expensive but atleast it does what it says. still got about 8 tubes of that showerwall adhesive on my van waiting to be hurled into a skip.
    use one and a half tubes per 8x4 sheet

    Also tube wise you will be looking at around 1.5-2 tubes per sheet

    +1 for the toolstation stuff KOP posted. I've used everything and that is by far and away the best.

    I too hate the bath trims and also the corner trims. Proper cuts and filled with silicone prior to install is perfect...

    I kicked MultiPanel into touch big style. Lying, comtemptuous f wits who model their behaviour on Sadam Hussain and Idi Amin. Yes quote me, I record all my calls if anyone wants the evidence...

    Ended up only using Mermaid trade panels. They were not perfect by any means. Have fitted approx 100 boards and never once got a perfect join with the locking boards. We are only talking occasional fractions of a millimeter but it always bugged the life out of me... Even the same in my own en-suite!

    That said, still a trillion billion zillion times better than tiling IMHO.

    Small update.

    Panels came earlier and the Mrs took delivery as I am at work however she says they are very very heavy and is worried about them over the bath!

    I bought some Stixall adhesive, will it be good enough? need to put the Wife's mind at ease, I'll be honest, I havent really used 'glue' to stick stuff, normally screwed/nailed stuff.

    My vote goes for sticks like sheet, it’s solvent free aswell, not that it matters on mdf boards. I’ve done pvc and mdf shower panels with this, it’s the only adhesive I use for any sticking of stuff!!
