MPGuino LCD swap?

Hi all i have been reading into the MPGuino for a while now and i think its right for me (now just have to save up some cash!) Anyways i have looked through some posts and i like the idea of the blue LCD. How difficult would it be if i got the preassembled kit to swap out the LCD for a blue one? I have some knowledge of soldering and electronics but i'm not sure if i could assemble the kit. I think it would be easier if i got the kit just because i would have to solder the LCD anyway, but how difficult is it to assemble the kit? My main concern is the tiny size of stuff. Which would you reccomend buy the preassemble and swap out the LCD or buy the kit and just put it together with the blue LCD?

FYI, Amy will leave the LCD unsoldered if you let her know your preference, buttons too. It comes with a "we can't properly test it like this" disclaimer though.
