False bottom for MLT arrived, and so did all of the remaining guts and enclosure for the panel! UPS lost my CP part shipment for four days, so I lost this past weekend of build time.

Guess I'll have to spend some additional time on this over the coming weekend to catch up.

Christmas Day brew is looking good!

Loosely spaced out components on panel door. Will tape, measure and start drilling Saturday morning (or maybe Friday evening).

With the switches down low and near the edge - keep in mind that the rubber seal around the frame may interfere with that plan, and even if the switch fits fine, remember there will be wires coming out of them too.

Good point... that rubber seal is pretty thick! Going to tape the entire front of the panel and do a measured layout before I cut anything.

I like seeing all the different ways people are doing these. Has anybody got an idea of the cost savings as apposed to purchasing the kits? Keep up the good work and thanks to all those applying their expertise.

Home brewers rock
