2023-01-30 (M) EWC_Box Faceplate modification and population

I began installing the components, but my screen did not fit, and the potentiometer leads were in the way of their neighbors. I considered adjusting the drawing and cutting a new panel, but I wanted to modify this one to test everything. I am worried that the knobs will be too close, then I will need to make a new plate with updated spacing. I shaved the screen socket with a razor knife, but it looks jagged if you get close. I drilled new anti-rotation holes for the potentiometers, and they fit. The equalizer at the bottom will rest on the bottom of the enclosure supported by a 2x4, but I had to remove the mounting brackets. They were in bad shape because the tapped holes on the side were the wrong thread, so I had to excise a stuck machine screw by cutting a slot in the top with a rotary tool and then applying serious torque with an electric screwdriver. For the picture, I held the screen in place with my hand and balanced the faceplate so the equalizer would sit flush, but it shows what the face should look like when I finish.
