Brake block - redux

Haven't had any luck finding a brake block like I had on my previous D2 S8. This was circa 2007, so for those not in the know the brake block is installed under the hood to brace the master cylinder against the strut brace, eliminating some of the flex and resulting in a firmer pedal feel when applying the brakes.

Some of you have simply made these out of wood, but I'm thinking about having some aluminum ones made up like the original. I have an initial quote of $90 each for an order of 5 and $60 each for an order of 10. Not terribly unreasonable, and it would be even less for a larger quantity. I'd like to see if there's enough interest to make this happen.
