Soundcraft 500B 32x8x2/PSU recap + Parts

Hi Gareth/folks,
Does anyone have a list of capacitors needed for the PSU (not sure if mine is the CPS450 or 650), inputs, master and subgroups? Thank you in advance! Also, I grabbed a similar 'donor' console in San Antonio for some frame parts, likely sell most of the modules/vu meters/etc - if any one is interested, pm me!

Here I use the CD 33,000 uf/35V caps to replace the 4700 or 10,000 uf/50v for the audio rails. There are six in the 450. Get those from Mouser.
The secondary/outout caps are 2200/25V Panasonic FR and change the .1 uf mylar caps to Wima .1 uf/250V MKP-2.
