Question for people familiar with On-Q Enclosures

So, long story short, the guys prewiring my house use On-Q enclosures.

They're dropping in about 30 Cat6 drops, and I'm going to terminate them into a patch panel. Although, it's cost effective to buy the 12 port mini patch panels from Monoprice...

But, integrating those into the enclosure doesn't look straight-forward at all. I'd probably have to drill new holes into the thing, if that even worked.

So I looked into getting the something to fit the cabinet. Of course, On-Q sells them. And of course they're stupid expensive, but they do look a bit slicker....

Now it looks like that thing is actually a smaller panel (the white part) stuck into a black frame, to fit the On-Q enclosure holes. My question is... Is that smaller part a 'grayfox' panel (and wtf is 'grayfox'? brand name? standard?).

If I buy this thing, can I fit 3 of those On-Q patch panels across?

Any other tips/suggestions?

I have 3, 42-inch cans stuffed, but have all of the data terminated into a patch panel which resides in a rack.
Do you have to go into a can or can you do a small rack?

At this stage, I'm basically constrained to the cans. It was my preferred method from the start due to space constraints and neatness, but now the cans are in, and rough wires are dropped in. I guess I COULD go to a rack, but probably with much more expense and trouble than any kind of can-mounted patch panel would be.
