Backplate Assembly - Twelve Drummers

Firstly a grey PVC backplate was made to fit inside the enclosure to mount all the equipment on (picture 5). Then the equipment layout had to be settled, which was not as easy as with the “11 Pipers” as there was a lot more to fit in a similarly sized enclosure. The backplate had been made as wide as possible to help with this, but it was now wider than the door opening so it had to be tilted sideways to get it through. In just under a week all was fixed in place on the backplate ready for wiring to commence. Picture 5 – Enclosure with Backplate cut to size and fitted
