I mounted the instrument panel and then aligned the aluminum radio stack side wall with the bottom of the radio stack opening.

I clamped it in place and used it as a drill template for holes into the side walls between the sub panel and panel.

I then mounted the trays using screws and lock nuts. Here are the trays mounted with the radios inserted. Note that the aluminum side walls provide support for a couple of mounting holes that would have landed in the cutout of the panel support sidewalls.

Next I mounted the VPX box. It was over 100 in the garage, hence the head band to keep sweat from dripping on the expensive $$$ electronics.
