I cut the faceplates on my laser and broke out all the holes that did not cut thoroughly. Since I am using components that cover their mounting hole, everything looked tidy. After a test fit, I sandwiched the halves together and saw where the banana plug posts would touch one of the USB terminals, but they were both grounds, so I kept going.
Inside the plates

I wired each side independently and relied on crimped 1/4" quick-disconnect spade terminals for the automotive components. I soldered the rest of the parts and checked continuity. I combined the halves with M3 bolts across the top three holes and M4 hardware through the battery holder with coupling nuts to join the bolts. After assembly, I checked for short circuits and powered the unit up without problems.
