Hi Scott, your calamity may not be all that bad, if it is just the usual one rivet gouge in the drum, you can replace the bad lining and continue to run the gouged drum, it will not affect your stopping at all, and will do no further damage, at least it never did for me, I hardly ever had brake drums turned, just found it wasn't necessary, just one man's opinion, of course, oh yes, some one produces a sleeve that can be installed in the original drum, I believe it is available for 12" Buick brakes, check with a brake supply, Rolf
