A little disapointed

Greetings all.
Before i send me seething hate email I have to ask.
Has anyone had this happen?
Am I to blame for this?
I'll have to admit....I'm not real happy about it.
Thankfully i put new grills in otherwise it would of gone right through.

Is that a screw for the speaker that went in a little too far?

Lightly tap it flush and put a nice Irish clover sticker over it.And don't do it again.

ok so here is some more info on what happened
I ordered new grills and 6.5 speaker adapters from Hawg Wired.
After the install I discovered these 2 little dents.
I quickly pulled the screws and added washers in the hopes to create more space.
Maybe part of me thought they would go back to original form....me stupid moment.
Now to be honest i was thinking of switching out the inner fairing with one from Painted Harley Fairing.
But now i'll have to wait and see if its ok....I'm sure it is but this little mishap kinda pi$$es me off.
thanks for the responses and tomorrow i will send my seething hate email.

I did the same thing with the same stuff from HW. Except mine is all four LoL. Not sure why they sent screws that could do that, but it is what it is.
