750 rudder skin shifted

Hello while starting my rudder build everything lined up fine initiallyhowever while drilling and clecoing i noticed that the holes toward the bottom trailing edge of the rudder where close and in some cases outside of edge distance. I followed the instructions in the photo guide , but it appears  that the duck tape was not strong enough to keep the skin pulled towards the spar. So i am not thinking of relocating some holes to keep them within edge distance See More

Thanks.  I have an airplane.  Problem is, the builder installed the wing spars UPSIDE DOWN.  Yes, he really did.  Flew it that way for 40 hours and never understood what he did.  I bought the whole thing, dismantled, and am going to have to build two new wings at a minimum.  I knew that going in, but paid very little and got an engine and all instruments along with what I can salvage from the airframe for less than the cost of the engine.  So, it's all good.  Your wings are best sold as a complete airframe, not in pieces.
