Default Sources for Carbon Fiber in wierd sizes?

Hi guys. I have a Mini Funtana that I am repairing and I am having some issues with finding the carbon fiber pieces I want. I have been looking for a rod/tube to replace the stock wing rod with and am having no luck. The closest size I have been able to find is .220", but the stock rod is .25". It is not close enough that I would feel comfortable enough to use it.

I also need a square strip of CF for the wing spars. For this I need a .25"x.125" piece, but I haven't had any luck finding this either.

I am also looking for some CF weave to reinforce a servo mount area, but I think I should be able to get it wherever I find the above needed parts.

Any thoughts guys?
