Van Diemen wishbone longshot

Evening all.
I have slight issue with my van diemen after getting a little too carried away at llandow sprint earlier this year and snapped the OS upper rocker wishbone. Dermot has been extremely helpful with advise and a couple of options but unfortunately unable to locate one.
Here is the offending part. If any has any knocking around that would be great (and probably a miracle too).

Chassis no is unknown but believed to be a rf88/89 formula 2000.

Its the same as the Formula Vauxhall Junior and I think Dermoy had one on BTDBTDBTDBTD last week. You could try URS or Alan Cornock.

There is a FVJ on BTDBTDBTDBTD which despite it's complete appearance is being sold as spares. May be worth having a look.

Sorry chaps, im probably being stupid but what the hell is BTDBTDBTDBTD?.
Also, Andrew I assume you meant Dermot?. from what I can tell looking at the pics the FVJ are not the same but will definitely investigate

Yes, I meant Dermot. Bloody autocorrect! Btdbtd is the well known auction site. For some reason, the forum changes the name to btd. I couldn't find the vfj listed though. The Formula 2000 was the same chassis as the FVJ, but used a Ford motor. If your car has an LD200 box, chances are the wishbones will be the same as the Vauxhall.

Dermot helped me out when I ran one.
