Front brake backing plates

Hey there,

Looking for some advice. I have a 07/92 80 and my front brake backing plates are pretty much rotted away entirely. I am doing the full front hub rebuild, new discs, pads, all tie rod ends etc and wanted to replace the plates but they seem to be discontinued everywhere bar for 10/92 models onwards.

Does anyone have a work around for this? I can't be the first person in this position.

Any help would be appreciated.
Nayab Akbar on FB forums can probably provide rust free ones, they won't be cheap but probably mint.
@chapel303 I have this one which I’m pretty sure is off the passenger side, any good to you?

Sorry for lack of replies guys, since posting this I have found out I need a full rear axle rebuild. Spindles are so worn there's a lip the size of a cliff edge. Front end rebuild is on the back burner.
