I fitted them the same way as on the instructions and the video on YouTube so no I didn't fit them the wrong way in my opinion but can you make some pictures maybe.
Maybe I try to fit them once a gain and then post a picture I also had trouble fitting the skidproof on the passenger side on the fender.

I see what you did wrong in the first picture but I did it like it's on the 2e picture and it didn't go down.
Didn't you have a problem fitting the skidproof clamp on the passenger side.

I'm not sure what a skid proof clamp is tbh but the other side is the same:

Yes i also have the strut this way.
The skidproof clamp is the tiny wire that hold the strut on the ball.

When I fitted struts from a different supplier many years ago it looked like the bonnet would not shut properly (it did close but but alignment with the front wings was off) when both were installed so I actually used only one. Aluminium bonnet on my Type R so one was more than enough, maybe I should have another look if I installed them the wrong way.

if i pull the bonnet it will not shut and you see the bonnet move by the hinges so didn't pull any further.

Thats another thing if its an Aluminium bonnet, you should not be using 2, there designed for steel bonnets not Aluminium or carbon fibre, i'm sure its says in the instructions.

I'd be interested in these, take it they are only available as a group buy?
