Default Ground mounted Butternut HF6v

I have just finished the installation of a Butternut HF6V vertical antenna.
The link below contains several close-up pictures of the ground radial plate
and the coil/capacitor assemblies, which are part of the HF6V. I use the
antenna mainly on 40 meters, but it does work on 80-10 meters and 30 meters.

I envy your radial plate. Makes mine seem very cheap indeed.

Could you get a close-up of the 30m capacitor?

I have an original HF6V which had the cap at the bottom of the 30m coil,
thus placing all the stress across the doorknob cap. Ive had two of them
break in the 10 years the antenna has been up.

I know the HF6VX has a couple revisions made to it since mine was built,
mainly to allow the 12m and 17m kits. But I believe the other is the 30m
cap assembly. I would like a detailed picture so I might modify mine in
a similar manner.
