Easily, the hardest component to mount was the waveform generator. It could have been a simple matter of removing it from the case and replacing the existing mounting bolts with a couple screws but it keeping the engraved plastic case seemed like a better option. Two of the four mounting bolts were removed and two spacers and screws held the case to the enclosure side. There was no need to drill extra holes this way.

 The rest of the low-power control components were mounted with wood screws and short nylon spacers. Originally, the parts were all going to be mounted by drilling all the way through the MDF and putting everything on bolts. The spacers were going to be threaded to receive the bolts.

 Mounting for the motor drivers did require drilling through the MDF and running bolts. The long standoffs were the best option for holding the drivers in place. One driver is still being delivered but the standoffs were mounted so installation will be simple when it arrives.
