On the last step, have you found anybody that sells the whole aperture module. I would like to buy the module instead of soldering a new flex cable on. Any guidance would be appreciated. Thank you,

The entire aperture module is available on ebay, e.g.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/CANON-17-85MM-4-5-6-USM-POWER-APERTURE-DIAPHRAGM-UNIT-PART-NEW-GENUINE-OEM-/390482750985?pt=Digital_Camera_Accessories&hash=item5aea95ee09

Note that reference 2) in this original post states that when the cable only was replaced (re-soldering) the unit did not work, but it did work after replacing the entire aperture unit.

I greatly appreciate this DIY post- very helpful- but it should be stated up front that some fine-point soldering is required!
