Default Temp controller in collar

Howdy folks. I've been lurking here for a while, but finally decided to post.

I am about to build my Keezer. I have seen a few pics around of guys that have installed their temperature controller right in the collar. I really like this look and I am thinking of doing it for my build. The problem is I can't seem to find any threads dedicated to this sort of build. Most of what I find is the external project box type of build. Does anyone know of a thread that documents how this install goes? Specifically I am interested in how the controller is wired (without an outlet), how it is secured in the collar and any other info that might help.

Thanks in advance.

Hey Pawtucket,
