R33 Strut Top replacement (Proper Job)

This summer i'm planning on replacing both strut tops as they're very rotten, Is there someone out there who can supply the top skin off a breakers car or fabricating new ones? This is one thing I want done right on the car so money right now is no object, basically I want them looking totally OEM. I know a good body shop near me who I know would do a good job just its just sourcing the replacement tops.

Thanks guys I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

Abbey were offering these some time ago.
Else a good metalwork shop could make the plates up. Some restoration companies make them by hand.
Then you have the likes of Zeleou5 who can offer a full job

Wow that build thread! That's kind of what mine needs doing to it. I don't know if the rest is as bad, but I know the tops have got a few holes in now. What sort of money are zeleou5 charging to have that sort of restoration done to the front end?
