Older Model A&E Awning Parts Locator

On our maiden voyage I made a rookie mistake in turning out too sharply and caught the rear awning arm on a post and wrecked the inner arm and mounting clamp. Luckily, we can still use the awning and I am an expert at using tie wire for things like this
I found an inner arm on EBay but when it arrived, it was straight rather than having the 15 or so bend in it which it needs to follow the AS contour when stowed.
Any ideas on where to look?
Another option is to place a bend in the arm I have maybe using a shop press with some sort of dies to fit inside the channel. Aluminum seems quite brittle and I wonder if some heating would be required prior to attempting to bend it?
