I have a few thoughts on the preamp. Unless you're going for the authentic Garcia tone only replication, there is a variant on the preamp that I think sounds easily as good and is actually more versatile in general. It'll definitely get you a killer Jerry tone with the knobs set right, but it will also give you a lot more universal usage.
I'd recommend this version for you, and if you order please remind me of these details in an email.
Takman Carbon-Film plate resistors
Silmic II (silk/hemp) cathode bypass capacitors
This is pretty much my personal favorite setup for the preamp. It's very sweet and warm and the tone-stack voicing will cover all ranges and not lock you into just the Jerry-only setting as much.
