Default Rear flush mounting Nss16

I had a new electronics box built to house my NSS16.

I have a piece of 1/2” black acrylic that I will use for the back of the box which is where the unit will attach.

I would like to rear mount the unit so that you do not see the trim and screen is true flush. I could set the depth on the router to get the depth right from behind but couldn’t wrap my head around how to securely attach it.

The other option I thought of was doing a normal front “flush mount” Leaving the trim pieces off and then sandwich a small piece of black acrylic on top of the mounting flange for the whole width of the box.

Just curious if anyone’s done this and how they went about it. I think it would look a step above the normal installation.

Check out YouTube. I’m pretty sure Boat Outfitters has a cool video about how it’s done.

The acrylic is just an overlay. The screen will not mount to the acrylic. If this were on a dash, the screen would be mounted and spaced properly from the fiberglass to give it a flush look. It looks good but it is a real PITA if you ever have to remove the screen for any reason.
