Need steel channel to repair rudder on 1940 CP50

Does anyone know where I can get tapered steel channel for the rudder of my CP50? The 2 bottom channels are cracked and need to be replaced. If I can't find a source to them, I will attempt to bend some out of .040 4130 steel strips.

You’ll have to measure them up and make replacements out of sheet as “owner manufactured parts,” Victor.  Do you have the factory drawing for the rudder assembly?  You’ll need it for the 337 Form.
