Well first off, don't give up hope. Secondly what part is not going "as planned". Are you getting error messages? what system menu are you on and what guide are you using? You should exhaust all posibilities of doing it yourself before you throw money away on something that can most definately be done yourself. I'm more than happy to give as much help as i possibly can. There are also several MODs and very qualified people that can also lend their help.
