Gauge Display LEDs - GRRRR

I'm just pissed off...no one here in AZ will replace them for me with blue ones...too much liability they say. Not even a damn import shop! I know one of the members on here mentioned he'd do it if I sent him everything, but I can't drive without it LOL...or can I? I never pay attention to the speedometer, and if I fill up the gas tank every 3 days or so depending on where I drive to, I should be ok, no?

I would love to do it myself, but I'm not experienced in soldering tiny little LED's like this and I am afraid I'd screw up my circuit board.

How experienced are you and how long would it take ya? I'm picking up a Carbon Fiber Hood near LA (Northridge I believe) this Saturday. I'm driving over. I just gotta be sure it's not gonna get messed up because if I gotta buy a new circuit board it's gonna cost me $450, I just got a quote on it.

Well a guy on here said he'd do mine for me...but the post got lost when the DB crashed a while back. I believe he's in the marines or something...anyone know him? I'm going to try calling a few places today, computer repair shops etc to see if they'd do it.
