Mounting Points on HPX500

HPX500 users, do you have a favorite way to mount wireless mics and 7" monitors.

I have another year of PD video taping. Last year I was mounting 4 wireless receivers on top of my HPX500. This year I am adding a 7" flat monitor. Any camera people with some good ideas on how to mount all this hardware? And I might add quickly..

Are the top screws on the HPX500 camera available to be used as mounting screws? Can I mount a metal plate using those screws? Can I use that space for industrial velcro attachments or does the camera need that space to help chill it down?

Are their any available custom mounts that allow for quick attachment? I have looked at the Anton B extra add on mounts, but they are on the very back of the camera.

Any ideas, diagrams, pictures or urls? Or should I find a good machine shop and mill myself the perfect mount?

For microphone, I have a bracket that attaches to the side of the Anton Bauer Battery plate.
I use an 11" arm attached to the 1/4" screw at the top rear of the camera for monitor. I also use a short or long arm in the front for my led light on camera light.
