New grill

After doing some price checking on new grills...the dealership wanted almost $500 for a sport grill, I found one on eBay for $84. It arrived yesterday...
I went straight to the body shop to have it painted. When we opened the box this is what we found. FedEx broke the thing in shipping..as usual. So now I get to go through the return process and start all over.

Thanks guys! So far the company has been great. Had to send them pictures, twice, but they said that I should have a replacement next week sometime. If they follow through I'll do business with them again.
I bought it off eBay, but it is actually Advanced Auto Parts....or that's what I keep getting. "autosdepo" is where the emails come from.
