Metallic rattle from front both sides

I've had an annoying metallic rattle from both front sides for a while on my V6, getting worse

My local garage found it was the aluminium guards between the bottom wishbone ball joint and the disc

Someone in the past has put a cable tie to try and stabilise the guard, and he replaced them, but didn't have time to finish the job, because I wanted the car

I've had a go "reshaping" the guard and this has reduced the noise a bit

I'm thinking now that I should replace the guards

Does anyone know a supplier?
