Default Older Skymaster F-18c

Good day good people,

I have an older f-18 from Skymaster, it's unpainted and unhinged. I'm having an issue with the flaps...the right side went perfect when I installed the hinges but the left is being a real pain. The left flap is 2 millimeters thicker at the leading edge full length, so when you set it in it's pocket on the wing it sticks above and a little below the hinge cover compared to the other side. Have any of you fellows run into this and how would I correct it? I thought about cutting the flap along the sides and the leading edge and adjusting the thickness carefully then gluing it back together. Can anyone offer advice on this or should I just build it as is and live with the fact the trim will be a little off? I know there are a lot more talented guys out there than I so I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
