even with the right tools, if i have parkinsons, i aint soldering nothin lol
ax i wouldnt try it. if you dont have any experience soldering SMDs, get a scratch board and practice soldering and desoldering. the only difference will be the size of the traces on the mobo. they are super tiny and easy to break.
i would agree with you and just use black electrical tape
get some smoke out paint that you would use to smoke your tail lights on a car so that the leds are still visible but not super bright
