How to mount V1 to Garmin slide mount?

I can't seem to find the post/reply where I was told about the Garmin slide mount (010-10259-00 swivel mount).

My question is how would I secure the small base to the V1. This base has a threaded hole in the middle but it also does not have a flat base to glue the V1 to...its base is like a raised maze so contact with the V1 is not a flat surface.

I know I will improvise when I get the V1 but I thought maybe someone already has done this already.

Thanks,
Mike

I don't use the V1, but on my Escort's (I got 3) to use them with the Garmin Quick-Release unit thus:

I cut out a piece of 1/8" thick aluminum to the shape that will cover the bottom of the unit. Then I put a counter-sunk hole at the place you mention for the screw to go into the Garmin piece. On the bottom of the Escorts, there are usually 3 screws that hold the cases together so I drill those after I make a paper template for location. I use some thin nylon tubing spacers for the irregular bottom so the plate will fit. Get some longer screws at the hardware store for the whole tamale. For good measure I also slather up a bunch of J-B Weld to bond the two together as well.

The quick-release receiver base of the Garmin has several screws that hold it together so I use those through whatever plate is on the bike like the Gadget-Guy's stuff or a dashboard plate, etc.

The Garmin quick-release setup really works well and is fast to remove or angle as needed.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Actually it is made very simple by GadgetGuy.net.
You need "Base Plate III" available at:
http://gpsforless.stores.yahoo.net/baseplatei.html

You will find the answer to your question here:
http://gadgetguy.net/Catalog/10/BasePlateI.html

For example, this is how it looks on old K1200GT:
