I finally received my Sifam AL29W meters from Meter Distributors. Pretty nice meters for the price.

Now whats the best way to mount these? I know there are mounting posts, but I really don't have room to drill any other holes in the front panel for a bracket or anything. Not really any room on the bottom either because this is a dual unit.

So... is like epoxying the bottom portion to the metal front ok? Or a wad of gum? I don't want it falling off in transit or anything though.

What panel are you mounting it to?

Are you making the panel, or is it a Bloo panel?

If you're making it, drill the holes if you want to panel mount it, otherwise (and best of all) I hope you got the bezel to mount the meter, that's how the real 1176's did it (though they didn't use Sifams...)

No, I didn't get the bezel version. I probably should have, but didn't realize that till about 5 minutes ago :)

It's a drilled par-metal panel, so black anodized metal.

You can always just order the back mounting bezel for your meter - they're available as spares as well..
