Here's a look at the left wing rear spar bolt temporarily installed.  Once the wing position had been double and triple checked with the rear spar clamped in place, I started with a #30 drill bit and gradually enlarged the hole in steps up to the 5/16" final size.

And here's the right wing rear spar bolt temporarily installed after initial drilling.  Used same method as on left wing.
