Pardon? You seem to have completely missed the point of my post! Apart from correcting some misinformation regarding surface mount components, I was suggesting to the OP, in my opinion, his best course of action.

For your information, in the past, I have assembled a number of PCB's incorporating surface mount resistors and capacitors. Providing you know what you are doing and have the knowhow and correct tools, it's not too difficult.
