Hi! thanks for the additional pictures, It not looking good my friend! Is that the crack in the bottom of the board First Pic left corner slightly out of focus? You have some damage that is for sure. I agree with nonpr you should try to get your money back. That board should not have been sold in that condition unless the guy was willing to pay for the repair and was up front about it. I'd get my money back if you can and if you can't get a new box put in. It's a shame some people in this world can't be honest! Good luck JD hope you can get it sorted out. PS Did you try the soap trick? Would love to hear what that outcome would be. I bet it will blow some nice bubbles! Another way to prove to the slacker (I'm being Nice) that he sold you a broken board!
