Speedo angle ring?

Hi guys. We're all familiar with those "angle rings" that are used with aftermarket gauges to direct the gauge toward the driver so they are easier to see. The types I've found (Autometer) are for the smaller (2-1/6" or 2-5/8") gauges. I'm looking for one for a speedo or tach that is "3-5/16" or 85mm in diameter. I can't seem to locate anything like this. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I made one out of 4" diameter aluminum for my son's jeep (CJ-5) as the tach is on the left side of the dash. By doing this I was able to get the angle I wanted (I think about 30 degrees). I still have the other half of the aluminum blank. to do this you need a lathe but it is not hard to do if you have access to one.

This is the fun of have something that is not stock and different. The guy at the shop asked my son if I would make more and he could sell them. I said no. With CNC machines today it would be easier. Make a sketch with dimensions and take to a machine shop and see what it would cost.
