Where to find 68 chevelle disc brake mounting bracket for caliper?

I lost a few bolts from my rear disc brake mounting bracket and seized the tire and bent the large and small bracket. I have heated both of them and bent them 90% back, but one of the threads is stripped due to the rotor grinding down the caliper pin. Causing me to have to punch the pins out to remove the twisted bracket from caliper. There was only one bolt left on the bracket and also bent the axle flange. Which I have to heat and hammer back into place. Thank god for heavy duty real steel! Anyway I am located in the San Franciso Bay Area and need some assistance on where I could find just the bracket for the rear disc brake, since most I have searched for only show brake kits. I would sure appreciate some online vender or in my area. Thanks in advance, and any advice on the dilemma would be great.

Advice:

Tell us what brand the brakes are. 68 Chevelles didn't come with rear discs from the factory. There are about a bazillion different possible aftermarket or home-brewed rear disc brake options. Short of pointing you to a Speedway Motors or Summit Racing catalog, there's no a lot we can do to help without more info.

rear bracket

Well to be honest I bought this conversion 5 years ago, so I do not remember the brand, it is nothing fancy like wilwood or anything, just the standard OEM drum to disc conversion, I think I did find something on piratejack's hotrod website it is not the same bracket as I have but I think it will work, and I can swap the other bracket on second wheel so they are matching brackets. Caliper looks the same on there application video, same as what I have, keeping fingers crossed. 90usd for the bracket and hardware kit.
