Hi Nick, The restuffed capacitors were removed from scrap radio and TV chassis.
I've never like the look of hi-viz capacitors in vintage equipment so while there is next no modern stuff coming in for repair the freed up time can be devoted to redoing the restorations on as many of my vintage sets as possible.
Those blue and black electrolytics will be replaced with rebuilt period capacitors.
I'll try to replace as many of those four value band resistors as possible. There's no doubt those new resistors are excellent but like the hi-viz capacitors the modern resistors just don't look right in this set.

DFWB.
