Gagh! Brave man! That sounds like a mighty project.
The *first* thing I would do if I even considered taking on such a task would be to design a nice channel strip PCB with all the pots down one edge so that I had zero wiring to do!

It was a pain making the enclosure (from wood!), took ages to solder up all the electronics (mostly on veroboard with lots of flying leads to the pots and switches!!!), and ended up being waaaaaay more expensive than I had imagined.
