Okay Fellas, She's out of her 24 hour Evaporust bath and I think she looks great!  I found some markings that I couldn't see before because of all the dirt and grime.  I stuck my bore scope down her barrel and there are maybe two areas that have very slight pitting.  The chamber is in wonderful shape, much better than I thought it would be. My headspace gauges should be here in a few days and then I can start fitting the bolt.  The bolt currently has a number 0 head. I have ordered a number 1 head just because I may need it.  The bolt came with an extractor, extractor screw, striker, firing pin locking screw and most of the safety.  I will need to get a safety spring.  The current head clocks just under half it's width past the locking lug.  I hope that the number 1 head clocks the same.  I also ordered a firing pin and firing pin spring.  I located an old post on here where somebody made a firing pin tool out of a 6mm deepwell socket.  I plan to do the same.
Here's some pics:
