Default brake dust shield

I need to get dust shields for my sport brakes.

I'm thinking about doing brake ducts through them.

Anyone know the website that sells the shields (and other spec parts) with the hole for ducting, or anyone have thoughts on making my own dust shields out of sheetmetal? I guess it can't be that hard to cut the shape, happer a lip, then cut a hole and rivet on some dryer ducting.

FM salvage has them for $90

edit: without holes...you'd have to make your own holes

megamonster body kit i think is what it's called. a guy on miata.net sells it. i asked him to come over here and introduce himself, but he never did. still, I don't see how it's worth $1300 more than an RB/AWR kit.
