Default Upper Intersection Fairings mislabeled

Anyone else receive the upper intersection fairings labeled opposite what they should be? The L is the R and the R is the L. Since I have both enantiomers (non super imposable mirror images), it is not an issue. But it made me think about which side is the left and the right side of the plane.

Sounds like they shipped you a fairing assortment that's RACEmic. Should make you faster.

I?ve been flying without them but this is rhe week to get them done, and yes, mine are either mislabeled or just a terrible fit! I also have both and will swap them. Thanks for the heads-up!

I was wondering if someone was going to comment on my chemistry analogy. Enantiopure would have been an issue for sure.
