Dude, I've effed up the first Magnum build I ever did as well.. this was pre-HPL. I was in the original SR-60 modding thread with Bilavideo when they first came out
Soldering ain't hard I would have been glad to walk you over it through skype or the phone, but then again Ted was more than happy to take them back I assume.
