Well, Svfara contacted me again today and is sending out a kit to fix it up
. While I'm quite impressed with them about how they handled it (admitted it was something done in error at mfg and not trying to cover it up), I was disappointed to find out that the rep/dealer I bought it from was supposed to have known about the problem but didn't bother to tell me. Hmmmm.
It also sounds like they are trying to set up a dealer close to my location as well. Hopefully that comes to fruition soon!
