So for my birthday the wifey alloted me (amongst other things) $50 for bass parts.
I've already got a black babicz bridge and sunbeam strings on my LEFTY tobacco burst VM jazz. I'm wanting to black out the rest of the hardware: Here's what I'm thinking (all coming to Canada).

I'm pretty sure the tuners are what a guy in portland is selling for a little less but the shipping kills it. Even seems like the same number of gear teeth so I'm 'hoping' for a good fit...
Can you see any gotcha's with these items? I'm still gonna need pickguard screws and if there's money left a back plate as well. Is there anything I've missed?
After this? Well it's probably time to save for a good fret level and setup then better pickups!
Any thoughts and suggestions are invited...
