Well he said he was not sure if the bolts would fit or not. They might. 2 weeks shipping is unacceptable as well holidays or not. The shipping companies hire a bunch of temps to offset the volume, I was getting things I ordered from the middle of the country in 3 days in mid/late December for Xmas gifts.
Who did you get the pipe from? If it was from AM I would have been raising hell at the 1.5 week mark, and if it was from AM I would highly suggest PM'ing Alex (forum rep here) and letting him know what happened and what you are up against. They might give you store credit or refund some $$$ or at least send you the correct stuff.
Just make sure if you use the autozone cheap clamps you do not clamp too hard or you'll crush the pipe down which is why the strap clamps are nice.
Those bastards also could just ship the pipe as one piece and avoid any of the shenanigans of a multi piece unit like that.
