“Beolab Penta Amplifier capacitor and service kit” from Beoparts included the extra caps for the displays.

This long, but thorough video is a must

from New Zealand is pretty expensive to get speaker parts and electronics from UK or USA so I sourced rubbers from Aliexpress, but if I did them again id probably use genuine as they have the inner angle set right.

My Hack was as pictured- use a plastic lid from a jar of screws as a bath, fill it with acetone, methanol or alike. It holds the speaker clear of the fluid except for the rim, Also if you know of anyone that has a distillery ask them for the Foreshot it’s usually thrown away and works a treat.
