Default F1 Servo Plate Fab

I'm building an F1 car from RC Indycars as I like their chassis, very similar to the CRC Gen X 10. I'd like to mount a mini servo, Futaba 9650, 90 degrees off standard, like an F103. The problem is, there is no such part in existence. I've made a plate to mount the servo in and attach it to CRC angled servo arms, but it looks like a hacked up piece of CF. I need a plate with servo tab holes at the top and bottom and slots or holes on the sides to mount the servo and center it. Any ideas on who might be able to cut one for me without charging $300.00 for R&D for a $5.00 part?

I know i have seen a "micro servo mount" for the F103, but i can't remember where. I'm pretty sure it was one of the Japanese web sites.

EDIT
TRG has a servo mount, you should be able to shim it for the correct width #TRG5054

Or just get a Tamiya plastic servo mount for the F103 and drill the holes for it.

RC Indycars has a mini servo mount.

Says it can be made a bit bigger for Futaba mini servos.

I picked that piece up and it didn't work. It put the servo too far forward so its on the shelf again. Rob's suggestion is probably the best. In the mean time, I took some 1/16" x 3/4" aluminum and just made a captive bracket last night. It'll work. I lined it with servo tape then pinched it together as I slipped the screws in from the bottom. No extra drilling needed this time. Servo is in snug and doesn't move around. Again, not machine quality pretty, but it does the job.

Next overseas order, I'll get one! I've given up on the angled servo mount idea now.
