Default Question for new wire!

I just had New Wire redo my switch panel. Looks great! But now i want to redo my helm. Get a panel made with new cutouts for my new electronics in that glossy acrylic. My question is. Is there a way to not see the screws? Like can it have bolts coming off the back instead of screws?

Default Glue flathead studs on the rear side of your panel.

Glue flathead studs on the rear side of your panel.
make thru holes on the console and secure on the rear with Stainless Nylon-Locked Washered Wing-nuts.
Better if you use plastic hardware to avoid corrosion, sizing, and short circuits with wet metal on the inside.

Hello, you can glue the studs or if the material is thick enough, drill a hole and run a tap into it, then use threaded bar on the back with washers and nuts, either stainless or even brass. You could also drill shallow and glue nuts into the holes and use short bolts or threaded bar. If your material is thick enough use plastic trim clips, in fact you could glue the trim clips to flat surface and push them into pre-drilled holes. Hope this helps.
