Aileron bracket attachment problems

I'm not quite sure what to do about these holes that attach the outboard aileron bracket to the left wing. I had this all clecoed up and match drilled through the rib, but after installing, the holes become somewhat misaligned as you go from left to right. The leftmost hole is probably misaligned by .030. I'm gonna ask Van's if it's OK to redrill and put the rivets in or if I need to do something else.

My dad helped me install the outboard aileron bracket on the right wing. We bucked the ones through the rear spar and squeezed the ones through the rib.

We also attached the inboard aileron bracket to the right wing. These were all bucked. Dad did a great job on the bucking bar.
