Segment Protector Hold-Back source?

My 2001 Bambi 19 has SS segment protectors. They attach via a hinge, a rubber isolator and a 5" hold-back bracket. The hold-back bracket is an aluminum extrusion 5" long with 6@ 1/8" rivet holes along the edge and a single 1/4" bolt in the center. I need to replace one of the hold-back brackets and the aftermarket part I ordered has 3/16" rivet holes in the wrong locations and a 5/16" hole for the 1/4" bolt. In other words, they sold me a blank that has been ruined by improper hole drilling. Where can I get an undrilled piece of the aluminum extrusion so that I can drill it to match the perfectly useable 1/8" holes already in my trailer?

did you find a source for this? I need the same thing! My 2015 AS international has 2 3/4" long pieces and all they sell now is 2" I don't want to have to fill the holes from the old locations then use the new ones.

What's the dimensions, I could try to make one. I know I could bend up a repair channel that would fit into the back. Need dimensions in thousandths

I see some replies and will address them all. I have fixed the old part. I found a piece of hard aluminum bar stock in my junk pile, filed it to exactly fill the radiused interior of the bracket, riveted it in place. I drilled and tapped a hole through the new metal and inserted a SS 1/4"NC bolt from the rear, then riveted the bracket back to the original holes. A SS washer and cap nut finished the job. No photos because I already reattached the segment protector. Also replaced the rubber retainer at the bottom and new rivets in all the hinges, etc. Better than new!
The replacement brackets shown in Richard5933's post look like what I had bought. The short ones are shorter than stock and the long one looks too long, so all would require new holes drilled in trailer.
