Top balancing Lifepo4 with AGM bank

Hi all! First post for me, so here goes.

I'm planning to top balance my LifePo4 battery pack this weekend.
8 X Winston 400AH.
So the plan is to use the "Method 2: Charging and Balancing Cells on Board" from the Nordkyn Design:
Assembling a Lithium Iron Phosphate Marine House Bank | | Nordkyn Design

So first assemble the cells in series and charge then with a Victron Centaur 24v/60A charger.

Then assemble them in parallel and use my old AGM batteries at 12V to get the LifePO4 cells to final 3.60-3.65V as described at nordkyndesign.

Has anyone here tried this method?
