The clipper change is a bit cloudy now, but I think you can just simply the
leg of one cap and move it, that's it. The splatter filter is even easier:
unscrew the lugs on either side, tie them together with a screw, lockwasher,
nut, and insulate well so it can't come into contact with the cabinet. That
will help protect your mod iron.

I ordered all the caps from AES and spent a few hours one afternoon
replacing them on the audio deck. There's plenty of space to work, so you
can take your time, remove all the old leads, and install the news ones

Can't wait to hear you on the air with it, Jerry. If I can help in any way,
don't hesitate to drop me a note.
