Sorry, but I don't really understand your instructions at all :-(

What are the arms made out of ?

Why does it look like the handle of a garden tool at the front / what is it ?

Weave thin lines - do you mean to "string" the bow somehow ? How ?

Use ''Front car resor'' for arms.

It's stirrup crossbow- easier spoof bowstring.

Weave some(7) strong fishing line(best), attach this to the holes at the end of the arms.

What does front car resor mean, is it part of a car's suspension system / spring ?

Do you have any pictures of the constriction phase itself ? It might make more sense if things are known by different names in different countries.

On junkyard should have it.

Just search front car suspension from small cars.
