Burl is obviously your best resource. I recently did a repair including replacment of two leading edge skin panels outboard of the lift strut attach fitting. Burl rolled the skins for me and cut the panels large and I trimmed following establishment of the rivet spacing. I used the old skin as a pattern to pick up the rivet line on the top and bottom of the spar. The rib rivet holes could be back drilled. I only used a couple cherries where interference dictated. It's a pretty straight forward sheet metal job. E-mail me if you have any specific questions regarding the wing repair.
