Just chiming in to say that I did the same thing: Drilled #30 initially, then drilled everything up to #19 together with all the parts clecoed to the fuselage. Worked great and everything is perfectly aligned. Adds a couple minutes of extra work but no worries about holes not lining up.

I happened to call Vans on this same issue today, and was told that the plans should include and instruction to final drill to no. 19 the holes in the access panel covers before dimpling them. But you still need a few of the larger (black) clecos if you go this route.
