Default brutus control panel

To all who have built a brutus what would you recoment for a control panel? Dont care if it’s stainless just needs to be fully enclosed and look halfway decent.

I would look for any NEMA type enclosure, I bought a 16"x16" for about $75 bucks, easy to drill/cut/mount and completly watertight:

I got a stainless NEMA 4/12 enclosure on eBay for $50. Killer deal. Just keep searching eBay and be patient.

I'd recommend a NEMA enclosure for sure. Mine is PVC and works great! I also have a heat shield in between the HLT burner and the enclosure so it won't melt!
