Brake Ducts and Backing Plates

Has anybody had any success with cheaper options for a backing plate? I know there is the Cantrell option for this.

I have searched and found many different options for the ducting but it seems like there are only two options for the backing plates and the threads are quite old.

Do you think taking the stock backing plates off punching a whole and then riveting a connection for the hose could be a viable option? If you guys have any ideas let me know.

Thanks!

Hard Motorsports makes a decent backing plate out of aluminum.
