The realm has a few machinists that post here and there. One of them could help you out ;)

There is an import shop on Bridgeport in Richmond that I am sure had these last summer, if they don't still they can bring them in from Japan. PM me and I'll try to get you their address this weekend if you want....

I got them off Ebay. They arrived in 7 days and came with new studs.
If no one from the future comes back to stop you from doing it then how bad of a decision can it really be?

I am always up for making custom stuff for the Datsun.

Do you want a location boss?

Location boss would be material that fits into the center hub of the wheel to keep the spacer concentric to rotation.

oh hubcentric. no point in a location boss cause the rear hub/rotor set up is flush, and the wheels have tapered lug holes.
and that centers the wheels fine.
