Monitor varies from almost horizontal (looking down at the monitor) to almost vertical. Just depends on the game/cab.

I still have posterboard sitting on top of one of my cabinets waiting for me to follow through on this project idea - I really need to get off my butt and do it! :-\

lol, I hear ya!! As great as this is I really  need to consider whether I just want to shell the money to happ and buy one...

I used a standard cabinet protractor to measure the angle.

Just when I thought I was set with tools.../grumble ;)

Old thread, but worthy of a bump IMO. I finally made one of these for my pole position cockpit. I wish it didn't take so long, but it turned out GREAT. Sprayed it with some clear coat to give it a glossy appearance and looking at it installed, you'd never know it's not original. Thanks for this!

Could you elaborate on where each measurement is supposed to go?  I'm kind of lost.

You can always use black gatorboard.   
If I had only one wish, it would be for three more wishes.
