Looking for a Machinist?

Does anyone know where I can find a machinist that would be willing to turn out a custom set of front wheel aluminum axle spacers for me? I'd like to find someone on the South side somewhere but that's not a must.

Well what I now believe can be done now that I've done some measuring is I think the spacers that came with the wheels can be cut or turned down to fit. That's the easy part! The rotors or bigger than the stock ones so the calipers need to be set back about a 1/2 inch. So now I need to find someone who can machine or fabricate a bracket for that. I do have the material for that. But not the ability.

Any one know of a shop that can do this? I talked to Warpbender and he can't.

Man really slow doesn't matter as long as he's good. These are just extra wheels I'm trying to fit. Just some bling! Please let me know.

Thanks
