Scratched up the book and covered it in wood dust. They offered her the option of either a replacement at no cost, or a 40% refund. You already got the replacement part from Weber, but you might still be able to swing the 40% discount from Amazon for the inconvenience of it all... I wouldn't mind waiting for a replacement dome if I could get a WSM for 40% off
I bought it from Essex Technology through Amazon. Essex's solution was that I purchase a new lid and they would give me a discount on it.
