I own TZ1 #0047 and am looking to purchase a LH lower control arm or find someone with a jig who can fabricate one.

Hi Wildharte

Did you ever resolve your problem?

The solution is not straight forward but happy to explain if you give me a few more details...

Again, where are you located?

Richard,
I live in the USA. Since your initial reply to my post I was introduced to and spoke with 2 very knowledgeable and experienced vintage Alfa mechanics one (in CA and one in CT) who independently gave me similar approaches which is to remove the bowed LH lower control arm, crack test it, straighten it to match the RH lower control arm, re crack test it after straightening, possibly add a gusset plate to strengthen it; and if somewhere along that path that plan fails, have a new one fabricated using the original as a template. To supplement that plan I can also replace the upper control arms with GTA adjustable camber and castor arms to further tweak the settings. Since I don't race the car, if I can get the negative camber equal and correct per factory specs under the first part of this plan, I probably won't upgrade to the GTA upper control arms.
