Just a quick link to the gallery for now.  Basically I measured the center of the mirror and holder and stuck on some 100% silicone adhesive.

As you'll see later, I somehow miscalculated the overhang of the spider to mirror face and drilled 3x holes and am still not 100% sure the focus is where I want it. But this end turned out just fine!
