online shop I bought the molding from for Father Time. I sent a very crabby email about the missing molding and got a super nice note of apology back with an offer to send a different molding with no shipping charge. Well, you can't get fairer than that! So I decided that the molding I had gotten as a test would probably work and asked for 3 pieces of it, which they just emailed me they are sending at no charge!
Oh, I am so ashamed of my crabbiness. Maybe things will start looking up for me and old F.T.
