Does anybody sell a capacitor kit for the Panasonic AG1980?

I know such things are common for electronics such as particular arcade monitors or PC motherboards, but I have not found anything similar for the AG1980. Such a kit would usually include all the capacitors needed, with a list of their values and their corresponding numbers/labels on the schematic or service manual.

Even simply a list of which capacitors typically should be replaced for this job would be helpful. I would think this deck (and its associated problems) are common enough to make producing such a kit worthwhile.

Granted, this job is trickier than your typical through-hole capacitor replacement job, but I do not think it would be impossible for someone who has good SMD soldering skills (even if it is time consuming). Perhaps this would help keep more AG1980s running, considering there seem to be less and less repair shops willing to work on the AG1980 as the experienced techs retire.

i highly doubt anyone would make such a kit for a tiny niche market.
