And I was wondering what enclosure you suggest?

For an enclosure something along the lines of a NEMA 12 or 4 would work as you will spill something on it before you can say it will never happen. With the honeywell valves you will need a 120-24VAC transformer, 40 VA for one valve, 75 VA for 2, and 100 VA for 3. Reason for higher ratings is lack of air movement in panels, higher VA ratings do not heat up as fast, and uneven steps represent diversity of load expected with controllers, both valves usually not in operation at same time for long periods.
Here is an example for panel wiring that covers 120 VAC loads for pumps and valves, and the 24VAC for the gas valves, note indicators are both 24V for burner side and 120V for pump and valve side https://picasaweb.google.com/110297595278760536729/PanelWiringDiagram?noredirect=1#550797969035051449 8. For spark ignition setups here is an example diagram for use with the LOVE TS-2 series temperature switches https://picasaweb.google.com/110297595278760536729/Ignition?noredirect=1#5420037998508461298

Now I'm hoping all this will fit in a 6x8x4 enclosure

You will need a bigger enclosure to provide room for switches and transformer, something more like 10X12X6 would be appropriate, don't start too small and lament the fact that there is not enough room.
A cardboard box is a good way to prototype, when everything fits and looks okay, it is the time to buy the real panel.

ok I have 2 Honeywell S8610U3009 Intermittent Pilot controls, a asco 8210g2 gas valve, a Honeywell vr8300 valve and a Honeywell vr8200 valve. I have 2 love tss2-2100 controls and a Auber SYL-1512A control. Does it matter what kind of transformer I get? I planned on putting the loves on the HLT and MLT with the Honeywell valves and spark ignition. I'd like to use the auber for only a temp gauge either on the BK or at the exit of my chiller. I have no pilots yet but plan on ordering them soon. Would it be hard to use the asco valve on the BK and have it ignite by push button on the control panel? what other parts would this require? Thanks in advance for any replies!

You need to draw this out and post it as nobody is going take the time and reengineer this ourselves just to answer your question.

I believe I have it figured out. I wasn't asking for anyone to reengineer anything. I thought someone else may have a similar setup who may be able to give me a few pointers. Thanks anyway
