Front Brake Backing plates?

Who makes good replacement backing plates (dust Shields) for front disc brakes?
I was at the Homecoming today and bought a set from Inline Tube and they gave me the wrong ones. I am mounting a set of 77 Camaro front spindles with disc brakes on my 65 and need new backing plates. Anyone have a good source for a quality product?

Thanks!!

Would these work for you? They're 1972 but likely close to what you're looking for?

Thanks Allan, Zeeke! I found a pair of NOS on ebay and grabbed them. They are very close to what I have but in much nicer shape.
70W-32.. I was warned and took the bait. I did send them a message asking for a refund, but with no receipt I doubt I will get any thing back from them. So I will attempt to sell them on ebay maybe..

We shall see how close these new ones are when they arrive.. May have two sets to sell.. LOL!

At least I had fun at the Homecoming.. So nice to see a collection of Muscle in one place. Reminds me of growing up when I started driving.. There was horsepower on the streets everywhere you looked!!
