Sajid,

Just to lower your anxiety I'm going to post a pic of my mods so you can see how badly it can be done and still work.  May the soldering gods have mercy on my soul for posting this with my globs of dull solder!

This was done with a flat tipped soldering iron + wick, some vodka for my shakes (I'm old) and +3.0 eye glasses.  Note that the cap on top of R87 looks like it's not connected with solder, but if you zoom in you'll see it is.  I decided not to go back in with wick to clean it up as nobody will ever see it (until now). 

If I can do it, you can.   Start with R87 and R88, they are much easier as all you need to do is hold the cap down on top (I used the pointy end of my tweezers to stab it down) and dab some solder on one of the ends to get it to hold.
