Frank #2,  
For every cap (except the electrolytics in the power supply), I went to the local surplus store and got the box-style polyester film caps. As far as placing the components goes, the only thing that is hard is actually fitting the parts inside the box. Polyester film .22uf caps are huge.  
I think that somewhere on Aron's page he has some pictures of caps, and you can see exactly what they look like.  
My Fuzz Face clone has (I think) a 3.3uf input cap and it is over an inch long!
