I chipped my Portishead Terrier with a Lenz Mini Silver using the method shown in the Railway Modeller Shows You How - Decoder Installation booklet (about £1-00 I think) and that involves no cutting or drilling or removing weights. Having said that the chip only just fits - you can just get the body back on. Personally I dont like the idea of removing weights to get a chip in unless it is a last resort. Most locos need all the weight they can get and the model's balance may indeed depend on the weight being there.

Sorry to hear about the smokebox door. You may find East Kent Models, Abbiegail's or have bodies but probably not in the livery you want. Hope you get it sorted anyway.
