Default iX StickyCup Adapter to Enable Adjustment on Both Axis

I like my iX mounted to the windshield far-left and low just above the reg'n/insp'n combo sticker direct-wired, even though the curve of the 'shield results in a slightly left-to-right tilted position.

Anyone aware of an add-on adapter for the iX StickyCup and magnet mount that enables adjustment left-to-right (or 'y axis' when viewed from above) in addition to the factory-provided forward-back 'x axis' adjustment? Surely someone's got a simple 2 pc + hrdwr add-on solution that enables dual axis adjustments w/ the StickyCup & Magnet as basic as the one I can see in my head.

This is when I wish I had a MakerBot.

I've considered other options including Blendmount for rearview mirror mounting yet keep coming around to wanting it where it is. Just not so wonky.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Your preferred location really isn't the best place for your detector to receive early alerts and threat warnings, no matter whose detector you are using.
