that would be the can and the phenolic wafer

are you going into production of fake capacitors :-P

Uh, no. I am hoping to find a simple kit to do a passable replacement. Failing that, I will simply purchase the mounting plates and leave the individual caps exposed. Thanks, all for the various pointers. I have found the usual suspects on my own, and I do own a large tubing cutter, and so forth.. But, I was hoping that someone out there made 'empties' as a kit.

Thanks again!

How about these cans?

Looks like 2.1" is the highest they get. Not a lot of room for multi section requirements, and they're probably expensive unless you order 1K or more..

I kind of like my idea of using schedule 40 PVC. Cut to any height, easy to shape or round off the edges, spray with flat gray or dark silver, hot glue over new caps - done. Cheap and easy.
