I know it's not safe, that's for sure. Soft braking may be ok for a week or 2....

Check out Centric HD rotors.... Here:

or just the rotors:

KNS Brakes

I've used them the last 2 sets of rotors I've needed and they are perfect.

I replaced my pads and rotors for $100 a corner - just do one corner. Rigging a braking system can have driving consequences far more expensive than replacement items. I'd strongly recommend fixing it properly or parking it.
