The common way to do this is use a steel or plastic plate - about the size
of your board; mount the standoff items through/on that board and then
glue that entire board to the side of your enclosure. Depending on the
material of the board you either stance the holes up to make the bottom
flush, use a thick enough material for threads or taper the holes far
enough and use angular bolts. Or alternatively with an O ring bolt it
through the side with a corrugated link-in construction (sorry for the
crap translations). You propably want to groove the latter.
