Thanks for all the info.
I guess I'm still mystified- I was under the impression that there was a way to achieve a more accurate look by means of adjusting the male end of the mounting system.
Mac- I think you mentioned this in your Goldie thread; was cutting into to the mount receiver necessary?

As of now, having only modified the angle of the dome mount, when I place the dome upon the mask it tilts forward and more or less resembles the unaltered look- with the bottom front of the dome overlapping and hiding the eyebrows. Almost as if adding some sort of padding, say a quarter-inch or so, to the forehead, roughly at the same spot where the stock velcro patch was, would offset the tendency to tip forward. Am I missing something?

Sorry to make this more difficult than it need be....
Again, thanks for the help!

It's the seesaw effect. It's balanced on the tip of the mount, so will always pull forward.
