I know it's easy to circle bullet holes, but we are three episodes deep and that vacuum advance still has no hose attached.
On the other hand - I like the fact that this guy goes straight for the needs and doesn't get wrapped up in 'let's just put a new one on because we have it apart'. I don't know how many projects i've seen go sideways because people get into 'I want everything new and/or painted' mode
I am surprised that the wheel cylinders were not replaced or at least taken apart and cleaned. Anything that I have worked on that has sat that long had problems with the wheel cylinders either being stuck or stuck after the brakes were applied. It would have been easy to "clean them up" while replacing the shoes.
