    So I built a 5f1 head cabinet. It looks great. But I didn't exactly think through how to mount the chassis, which is kind of important. After Googling to see if anyone's made the same mistake and solved it, I came across this 5f1 head cabinet from Weber, which is the same idea as mine. I have not drilled the front mounting holes yet.

    But, even if I did drill the front mounting holes, so mine looks just like the Weber, how on earth would you mount a 5f1 in that cabinet? Once the chassis is in, and the screws are inserted, there'd be no way to get a nut on the inside of the chassis. I'm sure people have purchased the Weber head cabinet and put a chassis in it, but I'm stumped as to how.

    Doesn't the front baffle come out?

    Holy **** I'm an idiot. Mental blocks are a powerful thing. Once I accepted there was no way to do it, I just couldn't see what was right in front of me. Wow. That's embarrassing. Thank you Bill.
