Don't worry you're not the first person that couldn't see the forest because all the trees are in the way. Sometimes when you get stumped it takes a fresh set of eyes to see the obvious. Usually when something doesn't fit right, the orientation on at least one of the parts is off.
Disregard what I said. I thought the close up photo was of a different spot.
I agree, I would have thought that it should stop short of the spar flange as well.
Have you given Van's a call?
