Yes Rick they are available, just email me : email@example.com We offer free replacement parts once, you just pay for the shipping and handling. We will always offer replacement parts for sale to customers after that or for second hand customers. I think it stinks when you pay good money for a kit, break a part, and have to buy another kit just to get a replacement.
With all of our product line, we offer one free replacement parts of each component, the next one is a few bucks but very reasonable.
IF anyone want to order a second set of fans with A-10 engine set order, that is if you want to be proactive and try to remove the backing plate, they are an additional $15 per set
We designed the blades with a .010 x .020 filler between the back of the blade and the casting block. The best tool I have found is a VERY SHARP xacto #11 blade or a fine sharp dental scribe and remove the web from each blade individually. After clearing a few blades free break off the backing plate with needle pliers. What is left is the hub that can be trimmed up and/or sanded down. I would stay away from any power sander or back and forth sawing motion.
I am starting my A-10C build this week with will have an open engine, so I will take some pictures as I do this for that set of fan blades and post them here.

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God, He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.” John 1:1-4
