Thanks OZ,
Latest updated. Bent the dash mount plate, machined the yoke pin, bored the top plate to match.
I have no drawings, so I have printed out a lot of pictures. Using the pictures I try to scale the part as close as possible.
Next is drilling mounting holes in the base and dash.

I was able to spend more time cutting parts this weekend. I bored the hole in the plates for the pintle pin. Tacked welded the mount together.
Also did the lay out for the tighten nut. Along time ago, I saw a old timer welder center pinch his lay out for a torch cut out. I do this all the time and it works well staying on the line of the cutting.

I am also going to mount the tripod on the front fender. I am doing some research to make a correct type of mount.
