Default BMW front upright castings

As a follow up to the current discussions about the increased use of BMW 3 series front hubs in a build I would like to gauge what interest there would be in me producing some cast uprights to take the BMW hub but that would fit straight onto the existing Sierra based geometry without any further modification thus allowing people access to a wider base of donor vehicle. My dad is a retired pattern maker but may be tempted out of his slumber if there was sufficient interest. Let me know your interest and thoughts on the public forum so others can see what interest there is please. Neil.

Are components like uprights 'cast', though? I would have thought they would be forgings or the such like.
