There are a few other miscellaneous parts en-route and the brakes should arrive soon. I'm planning on getting my hands dirty shortly after the brakes arrive - it'll help me get motivated to organize and clean up what I've got.

The car won't go fast but it'll stop fast. I'm swapping out the master cylinder to the Porsche/all disc master too...because, well, I'm a fucking masochist. Bleeding the brakes should get easier but that doesn't mean that it actually will be easier.
I decided to go for these for a few reasons: The stock NOS rear drum parts are getting to be a hassle to find, drum brakes are a hassle to adjust and I've got a leak that needs to be addressed in the right rear wheel...in addition to the fact that I can offload a bunch of rear brake parts that I don't need once I convert. I'm going to keep enough to put rear drums back on the car someday and sell the rest of it. I probably won't ever convert it back though because disc brakes are fucking awesome.
At some point in the near future, I'd like to take a full inventory of my parts and log them in a tracking system with locations - it'll help me get organized, assign part numbers to things and figure out what I still need (if anything) to get done. It will also help when I send things out for work - I'll know exactly what went out and what came back. Anal? Perhaps.
Next update should be the brake swap...might be a while.
