Last problem on right wing: after riveting leading edge.

Top fuel tank edge is festooned.

Answer from Gus:
It doesn't look like the holes are so far off that you would need to drill new ones in the tank skins. They only appear to be about 1/4 hole off at most? You could enlarge the tank skin holes if necessary, or you could move the nutplate a little (you would need to rotate it to drill new holes to attach it) and enlarge the hole in the joint plate.
Make sure the bolts in the Z brackets are properly torqued and also that you don't have something stuck behind the Z brackets that may be preventing the tank from moving back far enough towards the spar.
