Aileron bracket problems

Since I'm on hold (riveting-wise) until I find a helper, I decided to get the last few wing components match drilled. Here I've clecoed on the outboard aileron attach bracket to the left wing.

Uh-oh. When I mounted the wings on the wing jig, I drilled a hole into the outboard-most rib to hold the aft spar in position. Now that I've marked the holes for the aileron attach bracket, it looks like that hole is gonna be a problem.

The right wing has the same problem. I'm gonna have to e-mail these pics to Van's to get their opinion.
