Where are you located? I'd be happy to do it for ya if you were around here, but its not hard at all as long as you have a soldering iron.

you'd have to heat the board up exremely hot to mess anything up, and i'm sure thats something your not going to have a problem with. Just remember, the damn things are like christmas lights, if one isn't touching right, then two or three others won't work, they are in sequence. Just press down on one or two that aren't working if you run into that problem and you'll figure out which ones need to be pushed down a bit more.

the new LED's are very small, so use needle nose pliars...
it is not that hard, you unsolder the stock ones, then resolder the new ones in the same location...
take your time, that's all.
