I quit using the 5200 as the hinges are pretty strong without. I use a 9oz bias kevlar for my hinges. As far as the thickened epoxy goes, yes, I use a dremel to clear out for the wipers. Lately i have been just running the torque tube all the way out and keep the splooey behind it. When I cut the control surfaces out you can see the torque tube in the roots but thats no big deal. all of my production models are done this way. If you want to connect the second spar to the torque tube then you can just do it outside the wiper area to avoid any work after cutting the surfaces. Hope that makes sense.
