what can a twelve year old girl without a boyfriend do during the summer when she's bored?

Answer:

If the support beam or beams are just sagged, I would not go to the trouble of trying to find a source for replacementI would take a jack [automotive bottle jack preferred, but any jack will work] and place it directly beneath the low point of the sagging cover support beamThen cut a 2x4 stud to fit between the jack top [in the fully retracted position] and the bottom of the bent supportHave a helper hold the 2x4 in that proper location, and you gently jack the support and carport cover back into proper positionSometimes there is a spring effect when metal is bent, which MAY require that you jack the beam and cover SLIGHTLY ABOVE the horizontal to allow it to spring back to the proper position when the jacking system is removedIt may take two or three attempts to jack it to the right place, but it will work, and save you a lot of searching, AND MONEY by repairing the cover rather than replacing bent partsGood luck!
