Used Mahle Pistons

Having just completed a rebuild on the 3.0 SC engine, there were two pistons that had broken lands between the top rings.

Since I hate to throw anything away, and since I have new Mahle P&C in the rebuilt engine, what can I do with my 4 good pistons? The cylinders are okay, and can be re-used, but if I can find matching pistons for the ones that have the broken lands, couod I use them in another project engine? Does anyone have just two pistons?

It might be fun to keep practicing in another rebuild, say a 2.7 rebuilt to a 3.0, or some such thing.
