The full height rudder mod involves cutting the top part of the fin and making good the fin. You can then fix the hinges and mount the longer rudder. Very straight forward and easy to do, just requires some fiber glassing skills and basic handling of power tools. Obviously it will need to be inspected when complete as it is a flight surface. Murray Flint used to do the mod on UL and SPL types. The mod is not recommended on the SK. The smaller sudder is more that adequate.
