After much work and being a political junkie, I am back on the board and offer that snarky helpful advice that makes me famous.
I am a big fan of this mount. I have them in both cars.

However I am not happy that the mount does not extend far enough off the dash. Besides most mounts never come a good place for use in a car while driving. I had it over the left center air vent and it was annoying. The mount lasted about a year there. It would have been much nicer if I could get it away from the air vents and up.
So here is my process and custom design. First I needed to make a mold to fit over the air vents. So I used packing tape and created a "release" mold. then I laid fiberglass on top of that.
The two layers of fiberglass was not enough for strength. So I separated the next layer by adding cardboard cut to shape and scored to fit the curve.
This is a mockup showing the direction I am taking this design
I trimmed the excess fiberglass, glued the vertical mounting surface, and started the bondo process. I need to get more bondo as it's been clumpy.
