Warped wing on GWS 109

I got a GWS 109, and have filled gaps with light spackle, preparing to glass it with .5 glass and WBPU. BUT, eyeballing down the leading edge of the wing, one side is perfectly straight, the other is slightly bowed, up. Probably not enough to effect the flight, but I was wondering if there was a fix for it, before glassing. A friend that has the same plane (a screamer) mentioned a warm water or steam solution, but wasn't sure. Any thoughts?

I'd try a hairdryer first. Not too close as it will swell the beads.
