This varies a lot between people. I normally replace only what needs to
be replaced though there are a few parts I replace preventative such
as some oil filled capacitors. Some recent fun with dipped tantalum
is making me wonder about them. I try to replace components with similar
looking but don't try to match date codes or brands. I will use what
works if better match too difficult. I only do cosmetic restoration if
its ugly. If it just looks used I normally leave it alone.
