How hard would it be to change a "pink" XPERIA ZR frame to a black one???

I can source a "pink" XPERIA ZR at a good price and I appear to be able to get a black Sony replacement case/frame for an XPERIA ZR from China.

Just wondering what I'd be getting myself into, if I attempt a "pink" for black frame swap.

If it means re-gluing a screen/digitiser, I'm not interested,

Also having to 'break' water proof seals may be an issue too.

I had a look around for an XPERIA ZR service manual but can't locate one.

Found a service manual in the XPERIA ZR general section so I'll start reading....

Any thoughts/insight into what a frame swap would mean, would be very helpful, thank you.

[Update]

Ah, crap. It looks like the screen is 'glued' to the frame and I'd need a "Disassembly Machine” to remove it.

No crazy people using hair dryers to pry the screen off on Youtube, so I'll put this in to hard basket.

Thanks though, sorry to just be talking to myself on a Q&A thread.
