[sdiy] PCB mounting tips

what I have done (sometimes) is to countersink a flat head screw into the panel from the front,
then screw on the standoff using epoxy. Then I cover the whole thing with an Aluma-Jet overlay, concealing
the screws forever, THAT won't break off...

I wouldn't mind a little silver screw head on the panel.  I use these
brilliant little hex standoffs with threaded ends, one "innie" and one
"outie".  I'd just use one of those, with the "innie" end toward the panel.
