Custom Brake Rotors

Does anyone know of a company that will build custom brake rotors. I am putting the SL600 brakes on my 560SL. The front is a bolt on but for the rear I will need a custom rotor. Or I will at least need custom hats and bolt on rotors.

I've seen rotors like that everywhere but It looks like I will never find a rotor/hat combination that will work so I will have to go after the solid mount rotors. Bu then I still need custom hats with parking brake. I will check with these guys, they look like they might be able to do it.

Thanks

What would it cost to have a machine shop make something like that?

I will let you know. I could make it myself but thats a lot of turning for a 3/4HP lath starting from solid bar stock.

I wonder if you could buy blanks to start from rather than raw stock? Any idea?
