Wanted: Custom made Brabus-style grille for W203

I have an '05 C230K SS and I'm looking to swap out my stock grille for a Brabus-style grille (four larger slats, no center slat, no star). I understand that these sort of things do actually exist (see pictures below, thanks Anthuny85), but that you have to have them custom made from one of the CL-style grilles by cutting out the star/circle and filling in the center of the slats. I would try it myself, but I'm just not that handy, and I don't want to blow $150+ on tearing up a CL-style grille only to have it look like crap.

So, I'm looking for either (a) someone who has already had one of these grilles made who might be thinking about selling it, or (b) recommendations on body/custom shops that either have already done something like this (no need to reinvent the wheel...or the grille, in this case) or a good shop that someone knows could do it. I'm envisioning probably just buying the CL-style grille, having it shipped directly to the shop, paying them to do their thing, and then having them ship the finished product to me. However, if anyone knows of a place here in the Kansas City area that they've had experience with, that would be great.
