With both objects selected use the Transform Roll-up to rotate everything 120 degrees. Click off and select only the mounting block shape and fill with white. Get the Extrude Roll-up and apply the following: Back Parallel, VP Locked to Object, Vanishing Point Horizontal = 0.0" Vertical = -3.0", Measured form Object Center.
