I just pretty much always test stuff progressively as I work on it.
Once in a while, I make a petit faux pas and forget to change something I was intending to and power up prematurely, hence I offer the general caution.
You mod looks fine, it should be good to go . . . . . Testing would have given you a little look at how a Zener diode regulates voltage.
The mod shouldn't get hot enough to preclude heatshrinking the area.
Don't get all carried away and do like 3 layers or anything, but one is a very good idea.
Expect some good reports here anytime now . . .
