Wouldn't it be better to just glue in doublers. No chance of warping the wing that way

well it's spars are Balsa, and it's a 73" span Classic racing plane with a 35cc MVVS,, this plane "full size and scale" has been known to fold in a wing, I would like to replace at least one Balsa spar with Spruce and Sheer Wed it,, I don't see myself warping it

Anytime you remove the spar you run the risk of warping the wing. A doubler between the ribs will fix the cracked spar. Same as full scale is fixed

But the question of regluing over Un Cure has not been answered. Anyone? Does it evaporate to the point that the balsa can be reworked as new balsa?

Is "uncure", debonder ?

If so, I have successfully re-glued parts after using it.

Does it make the balsa like new ? No. The debonder dissolves CA. It's still there in a diluted form, but soaked deeper into the balsa.
