Default Re: WTB 60s MIJ Star hardware (Lyra/Majestic)

I hope I am posting in the correct place. I am new to the forum. I am also new to acoustic drums so pardon the dumb questions.
(wow, I just realized how many questions I have, sorry. Hope you all enjoy educating a newbie)

I am restoring a 14X20 Majestic Deluxe Bass Drum which I plan to pair with a pointy badge Acrolite. I have included a few pictures and hope to:
1. Just find out what I have here (grey interior?)
2. I have included pics of some of the hardware in hopes that someone can date it.
3. All the hardware is here EXCEPT the legs (spurs?). Can you suggest where I might find them?
4. I assume the hardware with the red arrow is for a cymbal mount - Anybody got one?
5. should I put felt in the lugs? does it go around the spring completely or just between the spring and the shell?
6. Is it reasonable to think I might find a matching tom?
7. Does the pedal hold up the back of the drum or should I get a small riser? Seems like clamping the pedal to this rim is asking for trouble.
8. Which heads do you recommend? Ported?
9. The hoops have a very deep groove in the center (ha, at least the hoops have groove!). Is this for anything other than collecting grunge and rust and frustrating restorers?

Hope this is not too much. Please let me know what you think.
