Default Rims tube and panel

I do not really post that much, but i would like to show my new Rims control panel. I got the kit from ebrew and finished of the rest from lowes. I am using brewhardware rims tube. I used a camco 5500 watt 220v Ultra Low Watt Density wired to 120v. it has a ssr and mypin controller. I started out with a k type prob, but i was having temp problems so i went to a ptd and its on the money. my first brew with it was a ed wort haus ale last night , nice and simple. very pleased.

i still got to hard mount the box and rims tube
. it is designed to mount to a boltless shelf, looking around for a single piece

just figuring the best way to mount it

Nice! I'm doing the same build. I chose to use a 2ft ladder to mount my stuff on. Since I brew outside, I needed it to be modular. One of the parts was on back order, and it just came in. Time to calibrate my system this weekend.

Looks great. I'll never understand how wiring can look that good. When I did mine I worked the wire as much as I could but it still wanted to spring back like a coil from being on the spool. I couldn't run nice straight lines to save my life. Oh well, as long as it works.

Thanks

yes, that is a Lowe's box

just be careful , the cover is a bit thin, perhaps space controls more apart.
I did get a little crack in mine
