Completed Modification

Various views of the completed modification since it's a challenge getting a good image with enough resolution. If I'd had an appropriate nosepiece handy I'd have tried for a shot through the microscope!

The solder joint at the resistor doesn't look very pretty, with some residual solder on the isulation and conformal coating. That connection was a real challenge getting the solder to melt at the board/component interface. That part must have a via to the ground plane very close to the connection. I didn't want to apply heat for two long as it would potentially loosen the whole component or damage a trace on the board.
