I recently got a strut brace to put on my VY ss and all seemed fine till i tried to close the bonnet.. it seems as tho the strut brace is hitting the bonnet.. is there any reason this might happen?? its Technically a series 1 ss but already had the pins for the brace and its a factory strut brace .. so is there any reason it might be hitting the bonnet and stopping it from closing properly.. any help would be appreciated.. cheers James

Says invalid attachment.. You don't have any washers under the brace?

na no washers or spacers.. and the bolts where already there so i didnt put them in the wrong place.. thats whats got me stumped and thinking the s1 and s2 bonnets may be slightly different..

I bought a strut brace from Holden and put it on because the old owner took it off and left the nuts there.. Unless there is a different brace for s1 and s2..

When you put it on did it just fall into place? Or did you have to force it?

Other thing might be is your bonnet hinges might have been adjusted lower, do you know if the cars ever had a smash in the front?
