recondition camshafts

just shipped out some engine parts for the inspect+recondition work...

so looked at my camshafts... ( that shop doesn't do camshafts)

tried making pictures, but didn't work... to much reflection and not enough detail to show the stuff...

basically , on the left camshaft... there's two cams that have pitting
not very deep, and about 1/3 of a square cm

i have one cam with similar pitting on the right camshaft

i also have visible wear on 3 other cams , my guess , i'de say about 0.4 mm wear from the rocker arm...

my question :

can this be fixed? if so , who's good at it? ( preferably in europe )

if not , how hard is it to find a good second had set of S cams
or aftermarket replacement...

and what would either repair, or replacement cost me???

EDIT, just got a link from these guys

either reweld my old camshafts
or get new ones made from scratch

does anybody have experience with these guys? any good?

repairing my own cams would be 683$ + shipping to and from the US

new ones would be 836$+ 165$for MFI pulley+shipping to europe
and would be a 4 bearing setup ( can old camshaft housings be modified or can they run without modification ??)
