RH Wing Fabric Clips

This evening I started putting on reinforcing tapes and installing the clips which hold the fabric to the ribs. It was going well until the sun went down. I guess I'll have to add lights to the tent now that summer and the mosquitos are gone. I did find the same problem with this wing, as on the left wing, with the clips which were added in the field. The hole spacing is too wide to properly install the clips. A little work measuring of the hole spacing and filing solves the problem but it does take time. I don't want to over do it so I file a little and recheck the measurement. As soon as they're in the spec they fit fine.
