This is one of those things like "twist" that needs to be addressed at the beginning because you really aren't going to get it out satisfactorily by the time the hull is stitched up. In the first few wirings of the hull sides to bottom when starting at the bow make absolutely sure that the mirrored panels are the exact same length and do not shift left/right as it is wired up. It's really easy for one to slip relatively to the after wiring a few feet,,after that it's pretty much set as you won't be able to over come the tension of the sprung panels held by 150wires even if they are loose.
