Welcome back (soon) JoJo.
I am in a similar position with my Mk2 Kes. If you sailed off Seaford I guess you are in Sussex, whereabouts? I am in East Grinstead West Sussex (about 40 miles from Seaford).
I feel the need to compare notes as I too have boxes of bits and a) can’t remember where they came from and b) think I can improve on where they were anyway.
Let me know if you want to show me yours…
