RE: forgot to mention

Yes it bothered me that, due to available space and lead spacing, i could not secure the caps tightly against the board (the Arcotronic caps were also floating in the air, btw). That said, the leads are really thick and strong.
I thought about wrapping the caps tightly in Teflon tape but I should have done it prior to soldering them :( also part of me didn't want to hide the beautiful metal body :/ wrapping things up in teflon tape looks tweaky as hell ^^
I also thought about compressing a piece of sorbothane under each cap, but I'm afraid the sorbothane might react with the board material or with the cap's body, I don't see it as an endlessly stable material. I'll figure something out.
