That's what I did in the back. I mounted a 110VAC socket on either side of my A/C, although I probably only needed one, but, I am planning to put a shelf on either side of it. I mounted the 12V socket beneath the A/C in the center. That one was the only one that needed additional spacing and I used one piece of 1/4" ply and laminated a piece of the paneling on it to match the wall. I'm going to do the same in the front, only I'll have one of each socket type, mounted about 2" apart and will use the same depth for both, making another spacing piece to match the wall.
I don't think mine will look quite as good as yours do. My 12V socket cover plae was shiny too, but rather than buy other covers to match it, I found spray paint the same ivory color as my other covers and painted my 12V socket cover to match the rest.
