Here's a shot of the aileron leading skin for comparison

Here's the weird thing. The left aileron leading edge skin laid down perfectly when riveted, but the right aileron leading edge skin did not. I also noticed that before installing these leading edge skins that they were formed differently at the factory. I guess one was the "old way" and the other was the "new way". Well, I've learned my lesson here. When in doubt in an overlay situation, roll that dude!
