Do your homework and make sure you know how to use it. A desoldering gun will make this 1000x easier than using desolder rope, a manual vacuum sucker, or whatever else cheap solutions there are. A desolder gun with built in vacuum is a WORLD of difference and will make tackling projects like this a LOT easier. I have been blessed enough to have a another local collector have a desoldering gun, and trust me, this is worth its price of admission.
Not a jab here at the OP, just in general: it blows my mind when some people have $25,000+ of machines and yet won't buy a $250-$500 tool. Knowledge is power, and having the right tools will give you the autonomy to fix your games and be less dependent on others.
Don't get me wrong; I am grateful for those in this hobby that do board work. Sometimes you need someone else to help you learn or you may be away from home for weeks-months, and you want someone to fix your board so when you get home you're game is 100% ready to go. There are exceptions to the rule.
Best way to say it: I want to be the one that decides when my game is getting fixed. Getting a PF clear-coated - got it -that's a specialty that you have to take a ticket and get in line for. Working on PCB boards is something we can all learn.
/better yourself rant off, and like I said, not directed at the OP
