    Strut brace help

    a little advice is required if you don't mind.

    I fitted my Jom strut brace today only to find the the bonnet doesn't shut properly with it in there. so for the time being i have put some washers on the bonnet mount and moved it around so it shuts. has anyone else come across this do i have to cut the bonnet supports or just remove the strut and melt it down.

    Thanks
