Default SB16-03-28-78 aft spar kit

Is there a consensus on installing the repair kit for the above rear spar SB if a wing kit is still open?

Im currently working on my QB wings. I was about to install the kit, but called Vans just to be sure. They said if the bottom skin is still off, absolutely do the SB. Not very difficult - Id do it.

I installed it on my RV-10 wings during original construction. I can see it would be *much* more difficult to install it after the wings are closed up.
