Help with blown display socket pins— is this repairable?
I've got an interesting situation with an Early 2014 MacBook Air.
This device had soup spilled on it and was not powered off immediately. They attempted to drain the soup out of the bottom right corner where the display connector was, and as a result, the backlight no longer works. (it is worth mentioning the screen still works, I just used a flashlight to test)
Upon inspection, I discovered the display connector on the logic board has 6 blackened pins and 4 completely blown ones. Not only do I not have the equipment to repair this, it's also far beyond my “pay grade,” so I was considering taking it to a local repair shop with microsoldering equipment and seeing what they could do. What I’d like to know is it this is even something that can be fixed without a new logic board, because if not, I'll just buy a new board.
Here are several different pictures of said socket.

Thanks in advance!
Edit: Clarified a few things.
Это хороший вопрос?
You might consider just replacing the logic board. But as you have more than that here it might not be cost effective.
@danj If nobody can perform this repair that's what I'll do, but otherwise I'm hopeful someone can fix it for less than $250. However it is also possible there are other issues related to the logic board, which is why I'm skeptical about this whole situation.
