As mentioned… I also prefer to place them under the hood... :)

Here is a four-section replacement using Axial capacitors instead of Radials. In this example, the arrow points to the negative lead of the capacitor. (note: the body's crimped end of an Axial electrolytic capacitor is positive).


That's lovely work. I wish all the radios I have worked on had that kind of unused real estate to work with.

cheers

Make space... :)

Ceramic (porcelain) standoffs of various lengths can be found on-line.

Stilts can also be constructed out of…
PVC Rod Grey Plastic Engineering Round Bar.

6mm→ 20mm

heck, you can even use wooden Ramin dowels if you pilot and countersink them correctly.

FStephenMasek:

I previously used the ">>" indicator arrows to point to the negative side of an axial electrolytic capacitor until one time when it was incorrect and the capacitor blew up! Now I use the metal end to indicate the negative side. I did post pictures of it here:
