Default Rudder TE waviness

I completed the trailing edge for my -14A rudder yesterday. I used the squeezer with a combination flat and angled die. Turned out great. HOWEVER, when I rolled the edge of one of my skins, I think I had too much pressure on the rolling tool and the edge ended up with a little "waviness" to it. I was hoping that after riveting, that it might flatten it, but sadly it did not. So while my TE is straight, it has a slight waviness (maybe 1/32"). Is there anything that can be done to flatten this out?
