This is what I do to; for power inlets/outlets I mount PowerCON turn-arounds (NAC3MM-1) to the panel by replacing the factory self-tapping screws with longer ones (and then using some kind of PowerCON breakout inside the rack).

I'll see if I can upload a photo later.

2 mix monitor rack. I had 4 of these. 2 would clip together for on-wheel use, but were splittable for a one man lift up stairs.

nice! Do you use solder connectors or passthrough

I'll have to remember to take one the next time I have a chance, but conceptually I'm just using PowerCON turnarounds as rear-mounted passthrough connectors (all blue-and-grey PowerCON panel-mount connectors are D-sized, and the ones in the turnarounds are no different).

I can't speak for Chris, but after some experimentation I personally now use only passthrough connectors because they make basically everything easier.
