I just recently started doing volt mods myself. Once you get over the fact that it's your first time, they're actually not too difficult. The hardest part is often figuring out the mod yourself. If you don't need to do that, it's not bad at all.
One thing that I've started doing that has made the mods much
easier, is "tinning" the parts first. I used told hold the wire down to the point I wanted to solder it to and try to flow the solder from there. This is extremely difficult when working with really small parts so what I do now is to get solder both on the tip of the wire as well as on the pad that I want to solder it to. Then, when I get the point hot, the solder from the wire and the pad flow together and then you have a successful connection.
If you have any questions at all, post in the volt mod section and we'll help out as best we can. Get the iron hot and give it a try
