Default Base plate for Makita 3612

Does anyone know of a commercially available clear base plate for a Makita 3612 router capable of mounting a porter cable guide bushing? The original base plate that came with the router and the mounted porter cable guide, makes visibility terrible when using a dovetail jig.
Any suggestions? thanks.

You might consider contacting Pat Warner to see if he'd make one of his precision bases for your Makita 3612. IMHO, his design provides the greatest precision for guide bushing fit and centering.
