Default PreBent Longerons for RV12

I took a break (3 years) in my build but have gotten back to it. I believe in the past somebody was pre bending the Longerons for the 12. Does anyone know if those are still available?

Two of the bends are completed on the longerons now coming from Vans, the 90 degrees angle at the front still needs to be opened up ~5 degrees and a twist added.

FYI the prebent longerons are close but will need tweaks for final fit. Also, take it slow and don't over compensate. Ask me how I know this lol!
