So, what do you Ampeg guys do?
Many Ampegs (like the V-4) do not have a doghouse over the caps, and the caps are mounted outside the chassis. The Mallory FPs with the cardboard housing are no longer available.  
I guess you could wrap some additional insulation around the cans if they're connected in series, but I was wondering what most people do when replacing these. Or is this one reason many of these amps still have the original caps?
