Default RV-8 QB wings prepunch hole missing?

one prepunch hole missing on inboard hinge bracket double/rear spar. Callout for all inboard hinge bracket to rear spar/doubler is AN470AD4-7. Can find no mention in plans or drawing of special consideration for this particular rivet. Any ideas?

Call Van's support line, they are very good at clearing things up like this. My kit has had a few punched hole errors and they always send me replacement parts quickly. Your "missing " hole should be easy to resolve though.

At this point, I'd suggest also looking at the service bulletin and fix kit for possible cracking at the hinge mounts. I added the reinforcing plate on my right wing because it was still open and easy to do.

Default SB 16-03-28

That hole will be drilled in assembly with SB 16-03-28.

Need to ADD SB 16-03-28 parts while you are building. Much easier to install without the skins installed than after flying.

Looks like it is a $10 USD addition.
