Melbourne diamond coating will replate your heavy laps, costs from memory (quite a while ago too) around $70,  the thin ones are not worthwhile to replate as you can replace them for under $20.
The reason you havent had any takers on the 8" laps is that they are not used by many people, the 6" are just so cheap.

Thanks Rusted
What are the best places to buy the cheapo thin discs, atm this is for an experiment, not serious cabbing, just playing around
