Mounting utility faucet on unfinished basement wall connected to pex


Replacing all water lines in 87 year old house with pex. Currently have very old brass faucet in unfinished basement over mop sink. The faucet is not really affixed to the basement wall - just sort of hung from copper lines from above. I want to replace it with something like the Central Brass model 470 faucet but I'm not certain how to mount it to the unfinished basement wall connected with pex. I'm open to any ideas - thought about purring in a couple of 2x4 as studs to create a faux wall cavity to mount a normal wall mount utility faucet with pex connected from the rear. But the ideal would be a faucet affixed to basement wall or plywood with pex lines connected from the top.

Ay ideas?

I would use stand off rings.

Thanks - I'm googling this but not finding much in relation to plumbing - any references would be much appreciated.

No way to mount a faucet to the sink it's self?
Another way would be to use 2, Pex drop leg elbows mounted to a 2 X 4, 2, 1/2 nipples and two ball valves.
If you want the hot and cold connected you could use one of these.

The mop sink is not about a foot tall or so. I thought about the separate feeds with drop ear elbows but really would like to keep a regular faucet - one reason is to not have hot water splattering on hands and legs.

This is what I was thinking of. Round flange fixed to wall, 3/8 nipple of desired length, topped off with on of these clamps to hold your fixture.

Use Tapcons through the offset mount on the faucet.
