Default needing help

ok guys I will try to keep this short... so back in june I bought the team cactus 7k from loudurango. I got the amp looked packaged well pulled the back off took a couple gut pics and a few days later installed the beast. after a few days of low gain I began to start turning the gain up as the sub wasn't broke in yet. after a week or so of that I was comfortable with where the gain was at and left it. 3 weeks or so later bumping the whole time to and from work (15-20 min) im happy and ready to get it on the meter to see where im at score wise. until one morning I get in the bug fire the ole girl up and hear a loud pop come from the 7k. I instantly reach back and pull the remote wire. the sound had me worried but I didn't see any of the magic white smoke come out but I pulled the amp anyways to take a look.
this is where things get a little strange... I notice that there is some pieces of output fet rattling around and after a little inspection I see the problem fets nbd I will have it repaired... well after corey wont return any emils,pms or messages. I decide to try dbr witch he had told me he rarely works on anything over 5k but I try to get him to repair it anyways and send him some pics. he says yep output fets are bad BUT where is the little bars that connect the two sections. I said there was nothing like that floating around in the amp. I remembered that I had the first pic I took and noticed that it wasn't in the first pic either... so now I don't know what to do I have an amp that nobody wants to repair and I believe it wasn't a 100% when I got it.
I guess my question is how would the amp work without these little bars and does anyone know where I can get this amp repaired.
thanx guys for any info I really tried to keep it short. I do have the pics if you want to see them I can upload them.

That sucks. Those bars are just buss/distribution connections and are used because the current handling is better than running traces through the board. If any were missing you wouldn't have a working amp.

The thing is I know the buss bars weren't on and I know the amp did work for a couple weeks...

the first pic is the day I got it notice the box and the bubble wrap and yeah my shop is dirty. the second pic is the one I sent to DBr and is the one that he noticed the buss bars missing. there should be four total. you can see that they are not there in the first pic. I found a pic of an amp johnjv posted and they can be seen fairly easy I will try to get that pic up.
