Next time.... Just drive one hour north and your at the RE factory. Then check all the parts before you bring them home. Just a thought.
Sorry about the problems. RE has been great on getting replacement items to us quick, and will even over night them if needed.
Like you said, its best to plan ahead when installing mods.
