Default Wing root fairing question

I have installed my wing root fairings, and they are positioned correctly as far as I can tell. The rear fairing matched up with pre drilled holes and the aft edge matches the aft edge of the wing.

My question is with one of the holes on the forward fairing. The one that goes through the spar flange and through both fairings is fine, but the one forward of that on both top and bottom and very close to the wing spar. It looks like I will have to use a single lug nut plate. Has anyone else seen this?

I think that would be the way to go. I had just been there and drilled for a two lug w/o thinking and when it came time to rivit...well that wasnt going to happen since one hole is right up against the spar. In my case, I used a pull rivit there but had to go at slight angle and pull slowly while then straigtening back up. It worked ok but would go the single lug way next time.

Yes - Use a single lug nut plate.
