Dude! You guys ought to piggyback on Ray's Fiamma group order. He's ordering parts....gets a deal of some sort (for sure on the shipping)!

BenJJ, we should PM asap/share contact info. I have a pair of lateral support arms that WILL go with this awning as well, but one is completely broken (it's one of the busted parts from ghetto_fireman's awning) and the other one (actually both of them) are **too long** to work with the unrolled fabric length of this awning....but you could probably somehow make it work with these if you found that either a)the fabric has more "untapped length" still on the roll, or b) you could source/create your own brand-new awning fabric that was the right unrolled length.

Let's chat? Asap? Just want to offer ya as many options as possible to easily get this together for the lowest amount of spare-parts cost.

I'd love to piggyback the end-cap to save on shipping (almost half the price of the cap alone!), but $500 for those arms is too steep for me right now...
Who's Ray, I'm assuming he's not too far of a drive from Long Beach?

Ray = Forum Member 1der

He lives up in NorCal, but he's got this thread organized to order Fiamma awnings/parts, and the items are being shipped to three separate locations ---- where SMB Forum Members have agreed to have their items "shipped en masse" to save on shipping costs.

Thread: GROUP BUY - Fiamma F45s 10ft
http://www.sportsmobileforum.com/for...0ft-21570.html

The three locations receiving Fiamma items are:
1) SoCal (somewhere TBD apparently in OC region)
2) NorCal
3) Salt Lake City area

BenJJ or DosMars, if either of you decided to buy some Fiamma parts right now, you could probably still easily get lumped into the SoCal shipment of items and take advantage of the discount Ray is collectively making happen.

BenJJ --- the awning (and the pair of support legs) is of course still all yours if ya want it. And if you stare at it/poke at it long enough, I bet you figure out a way to make it work, even without buying any parts..........if you're motivated enough, you might find a way to tear apart the other mangled arm (since I'll give you both arms with this)......rebuild/repair that arm somehow....and make the whole thing work......just need to figure out if you need to supply a longer awning fabric for the slightly-increased "reach" of these arms......

Im gonna help BenJJ just enough to figure out how to get it to work, but hold out some secrets so he just gives it to me when he gets frustrated.

I'm the receiver for SoCal.....Ray is shipping them to my office in Escondido, and I live in South OC so pickup either place.
