Default Damaged floor corker

I have a Ferrari floor corked, but one of the metal arms bent. Is there anywhere that will sell parts? Can I replace it with bar stock? if so, what can I use to paint it?

Pics? Might be able to suggest some things to get it working again. If you replace with new stock from the hardware store, use a good primer and enamel spray paint at the proper temp and remember 2 lights coats are better than a single thick coat.

I ended up hammering the **** out of it until it was flat, figuring that if anything happened, I would just replace it with bar stock.
