A1200 maintenance

Just wondering you guys what your thoughts are on maintaining my Amiga 1200. I bought one of the first ones that hit Australian shores back in 1992, the Commodore A1200/HD40 and it has ran fine for the last 20 years but eventually something will give, fingers cross that it wont

I know the caps may leak (which ones in particular are most likely?) but what else?

Electrolytic caps are about it, really. The audio capacitors (near the RCA jacks) are usually the first ones to go. Otherwise it will just be the mechanical parts wearing out, ie. keyboard, floppy drive, hard drive. Anything else does not (commonly) fail.
