One tip is to mount things on the lid and turn the box upside down. This allows you a lot of room to work while it is mounted.
Real basic beginners question here. How do you mount things like PCB's and other components in an electronics project box like this?: -
2) Apply epoxy, super-glue, or some other similar multi-purpose/multi-material high-strength adhesive to the ends of the standoffs.
...but I'm not at all sure it will work with ABS...
I am certain. Normal epoxy does not bond to ABS.
Many consumer products use 'hot glue' to hold circuit boards, components and small wiring harnesses in place. I've had limited success with it, it tends to break loose under extreme cold, vibration and sudden shock.

With an interesting exception: openings in the ABS give the epoxy a "bonding" point. I have had success "gluing" tactile pushbuttons into openings. The epoxy forms around the opening edges holding the pushbutton in place.
