Default VS Rear spar doubler question

Going through the steps to make sure I didn't miss anything before priming and riveting and noticed this on the rear spar doubler. (See red circled holes). I didn't countersink several holes and I can't figure out why I didn't. Looking back at the instructions, I am supposed to countersink all #30 holes below the upper attach bolts, but I'm thinking there must have been a reason I didn't do those.. but alas not remembering.

What did past me do that current me doesn't remember?

The two holes at the top and the two holes at the bottom of your picture get bolts/screws put in them when the VS is attached to the tail cone so it's good that you haven't done anything to those yet. Check out page 11-5 of your plans to see this. As for the two holes in the middle, I'm not sure why you wouldn't have done those...maybe you just missed them? I took a look at my finished VS and both of those holes have flush rivets in them which agrees with the rivet call outs on page 6-4.
