brake upgrade 53 chevy

I am working on my 53 chevy pickup rat rod. I am working on the brakes and found a brakcet that will allow me to use my factory front axle and put on 2nd gen camaro calipers and rotors. My problem is that I need it to be 6 lug. My question, is there any rotors the size of the 2nd gen camaro that are 6 lug, or if I were to make a template and use some 1/2 inch steel and make my own bracket for larger 80's c/k rotors and calipers will that work?

No need to adapt or modified when a kit is available. With or without a booster.
