I would also consider using a black silicone around the edge of any gaps to ensure that dirt doesn't get trapped between the snorkel and the fender and then start wearing away at the paintwork underneath.
Your holes look nice and clean though, and that's a big battle in itself sometimes!

No problems mate
Getting to some of the bolts is a pain, ratchet spanners come in very handy if you’ve got a set

The story about the tow ball mount is a worry. Just as well it broke there and not with a heavy trailer wizzing down a busy freeway.
That got me thinking about another weakness/poor engineering with these types of hitches, esp where the tongue is welded on the end of a tube. It would be possible for rust to set in on the inside of the tube and start to weaken the joint between the bits, eventually failing. This could be worse where vehicles are getting into sea water.
