Redmosquit,
I agree with your concerns regarding COVID-19. I rigorously support social distancing. If you drive, I would leave the box at the doorstep and speak to Ed from 20 feet or by phone. I talked to him often on the phone when he did work for me. I am sure he can correct your case studs. Sometimes replacing a stud with a thru bolt is a simple solution but Ed will know how to do all that. Shipping has not gone down over the past 20 years. It has steadily increased.
Mr Mike
