Again, I think it's a very nice design. I would suggest a cover (clear if possible) of some sort over your control panel, just in case of a boil over or other mishap.

Good call there. The panel cover is sealed with a rubber gasket and screws on all sides. There are also gaskets and/or a bead of silicon on all of the switches, LED's and PID's. Nope, no water getting in there ;)

Nice setup.  Quick note on the high temp paint.  If it's the flat black Rustoleum stove paint, I would suggest ordering the Rustoleum "Ultra" stove paint from Amazon.  The flat paint will rub off really easily in my experience.  The "Ultra" is a gloss finish and holds up a lot better.
I've consumed all of my home brew and still can't relax!  Now what!

I used another kind from True Value that is rated for 1200 degrees F and had to be cured. This stuff is NOT coming off. LOL.
