Elongated holes in wing attach brackets

Below is a photo of the "worst case" elongated hole in the brackets that attach the wings to my Phantom. I'm contemplating what repair/replace method to use before assembly of the keel tube. Any suggestions would be carefully considered.

FOLLOW-UP Post: After speaking with the manufacturer, Erik Pederson of Phantom Aeronautics, he says that the brackets are designed with a slightly elongated hole so that when the wings are elevated to the proper dihederal with the upper wing wires, the bolts will not bend the attach brackets. So I guess mine are fine after all. Good Deal!
