Thanks! A few more pics of some progress:
I managed to cut the cutoff plate/shroud from the mounting plate without chopping any fingers off-lol! I think I shaved a few years off my psyche though! This can be accomplished with a dremel but I think it would take ages! I used a 4-inch angle grinder with a fresh cutting wheel. I made a few scoring passes before actually cutting the shroud off just to make sure I ended up with a nice even cut all around. This also ensured I had as level a mounting surface for the projector as possible. Notice that I also ground the chrome off the back of the projector to give the epoxy some
"key" to bite into.

Viola! one mounting plate!

Test fit.

After eyeballing everything to make sure I knew about where "level" was then it was time for the Kwik Set JB Weld-this stuff sets up in a big hurry so work fast! It is also supposed to be high temperature and after using some on Scott's retro I can tell you it dries rock hard!
