ive been searching online for three days, calling people in the yellow pages. Searched around and still nothing! I know people have it done. Cause people are always talking about it. I live in Socal so i know there is some type of shop in the rancho/fontana area. And please dont tell me to pay $100 and get drilled and sloted rotots from 88 rotors. im on a budget. I have 0 to my name as of now and owe my parents like 120. So i need a shop that can do it cheap.

ive been doing alot of research

i found out that 99 sentra rotors will work. But they are 6mm shorter which requires the calipers to extend longer which causes failure. Havent read anything about failure, and also havent found anything bad about re-drilling my rotors. Just cant find a place

Yeah, I'm doing the J30 upgrade. Best thing about It is my step dad has a drill press. So the junk yard rotors will be pretty good.

Ask around and try and find someone with a drill press, its real simple.

Good luck though. I enjoy read posts from people in my position, broke!

Have you tried your local high schools auto mechanic shop. They usualy will do it for free so they can show the students a new skill. I got my fc painted that way for free a couple of years back

and that helps the op how? future, the reason no one wants to do it, is because they think they will ruin the rotor and if you use it like that and it breaks, it goes on them. its more of a liable cause type shit. you might have to suck it up and buy the new ones. also try the local colleges. im sure your local college has an auto shop, and im sure they have a drill press there. just when you do, do it, make sure to use one hole and just re-drill 3 more...thats how mine is....

Future, the best way is to line up one hole on each of the rotors, with the 4 lug, stock rotors, on top. put a Bolt through that one hole and drill the other 3 holes.

I dont know about out your way, But you could try and call some local Hardware stores. I know the ones around here have drill presses, and willing to do small work. Its worth a shot.
