I made one out of the perforated stainless, hinged it, and ran the dip tube out to the center. Less than a quart of leftover wort. 3/4" ss bolts and nuts to hold up off the bottom with less than a gallon of dead space.

I see a huge space to let grain in at 5 o' clock, hopefully it doesn't clog your diptube

It does look that way, but it is some sort of reflection there. I can hardly slide a business card around most of the tun and couldn't get it much tighter due to the kettle being a bit inconsistent around the circumference. It is hinged in the middle and when I put it in place it sits up 1/2"-3/4" and I have to push it down, so I'm pretty happy with the fit. No issue with any grain below so far.

Well, looks nice! I'm hoping that I can buy it precut from these guys http://www.onlinemetals.com/merchant.cfm?pid=13533&step=4, that way I just add the bolts/nuts and a diptube.

I was searching Concord pots on ebay and came across this. I'm not sure if its tall enough to fit over a heating element, but it may be an option for some.
