Default E-300 mainboard replacement

Has anyone replaced the mainboard on a Evolt E-300, the CF pins are bent and would like to replace the mainboard. I work on computers and laptops, I have schematics of this camera and it does not look to difficult to replace.

The issue is if you can get the E-300 mainboard, and if it's worth the expense, rather than buying a used or orphaned newer model.

I say this as an E-300 user, who bought a new E-330 (for $300); my E-300 is still good and working, but I wanted a backup.

I see you ordered the mainboard but thought I would share...

Found this on ebay Australia, if they get no buyers they may be persuaded to sell internationally might have the bits you require????
