After drilling pilots, used a hole saw to open up the back side to accomodate nipples that run to the valves and the hoses for the triclamp pump inlets:

After valve mount, you can see the nipples that will connect to the silicone plumbing:
After mouting valves, here is what people will see. Valves are for the pump outlets, the holes are to accomodate the 1/2" barb Tri's that will have silicone hoses attached for the pump inlets:
