Default Missing half of a 1.8 diff

So I ordered up a 1.8 differential from Planet Miata for my 1.6. Problem is, the rear half of the differential case wasn't included. What are my options? Can I use my 1.6 case? Or should I moan and complain to Planet Miata for the other half?

1.6 carrier != compatible with 1.8 differential.

Try hitting eBay. I see diff carriers there from time to time.

BTW- slightly unrelated but there's a T1 Torsen up there right now. Currently $51 with two days to go:
