If you didn't see my repair stand I made, well I did and decided to put it to use.

Looks like I got to this one just in time as it was starting to leak. I don't think it would have exploded now but sooner then later it would.

I am really happy to say that the stand works great and after a short time I had all the caps out, board cleaned and then replaced them. I did order a snake light to go above it for better lighting and already considering some minor adjustments like mounting the iron holder to it. If you have a few amps to do this to I can't recomend making a stand enough.

#666 will be making up one half of the ms1k now if I could only find #667 so I could say its pure evil and then some....

I spent tonight on the 2nd half of the amp pulling the caps out. Everyone told me to avoid the rail caps as they cause damage being removed. I have not had an issue with them yet but the via's on the 12 I will be good at repairing after this. Looks like the caps were swapped out and a couple of via's repaired then but it looks like they put either the exact same caps back in, or at the very least the exact same type.... The repair stand though is working perfect, no sore back at all after a few hours into it now.

I have been spending more time on the circuit boards replacing all the caps then on polishing but tonight I got 2/5 of the buffing wheels out of the way tonight. I would love to try and finish them up tomorrow and get them off for plating asap but I am hoping to try turning the key on the mustang for a little while tomorrow.

Thanks miguelitro and I would say welcome to the site seeing this is your 4rth post but then you have been here 5 years.

I started making arrangements for the nickel plating and realized that I could include a couple extra pieces just to make the order minimum. After some thought I realized I had a DD10 that would be next to the amp and would look killer nickel plated and polished. I was originally going to carbon fiber skin it and it was my first ever attempt at skinning and it just did not go well and the only way to fix it was to grind it down and start over.

I got the custom badges back when they were made and now I just need to figure out if I want to do anything to finish them or leave them as they are...
