Bad day yesterday with all the rain hydroplaned and spun the car and bent the axle shaft. Does anyone have one for sale?

I will need a drivers side front quarter panel, head light bezel and a windshield as well if British Masters doesn't pan out?

Assume you mean one of the half shafts in the rear? Yes, I have plenty of very good used ones, but I am on the other side of the U.S., so there is likely someone in CA who has one.
"But that wasn't it. Upon further investigation at 74,600 the distributor cap had enough oil in it that the rotor could re-wet its self with each rotation. How the car would actually run with so much oil in the distributor cap was beyond me at this point! So dissassembly started last night to find that the shaft has no actaul seal and only a screw groove slinger thread in the OD is provided to keep the oil from migrating into the area where the fly weights, pertronix pickup and rotor exist in the housing. Because it is horizontal, the oil ingress once it starts has to get about a 1/2 deep before the oil can drain from the unit."
Your right in that the earlier distributors did NOT have an oil seal on the shaft-into-the-housing, just below the weights like the later 25 & 45 distributors.(most of the cars they went into had the dist. mounted vertically, so oil getting into it was unlikely). On the ones that did not have the seal, I knocked the upper steel bushing down farther to accommodate a seal(SKF #4702, 12X12X5mm HMS4 R).

I've got a full rear axle/differential assembly sitting in storage: like Bruce said you can probably find someone closer (I'm in Wisconsin, I think I've sent you parts before) but if you have no luck anywhere else, mine's available.

McMaster-Carr parts for Pertronix FlameThrower distributor shaft improvements:
Thrust bearing is: 5909K31
O-Ring Supported U-Cup is: 9505K17

Mcmaster-Carr Parts for Door Hinge Rework:
Door Hinge Pin Replacement:
Punch Pin Blank Ø 5/16 x 2-1/2 long: 93770A315
#4 Phillips with 3/8 drive: 51395A46

The upper portion of the OEM pin is knurled under the head to fix it in the outer portion of the hinge brackets which keep it rotating in the inner bush section if its not rusted together. Both of the upper pins in my car are sheared off resulting in the doors dropping when they are opened.

Clutch Cable Fix, McMaster-Carr Part Number: 35215T12
Clutch cable fix forever clevis gets rid of the leaded ball at the pedal end of things. I drilled out the pedal and put a brass bush in the oversized hole for the clevis pin to rotate in. It is the best clutch improvement you will ever make to the OEM cable.

This Sway bar arrangement gets the bushings and washers parallel with the OEM tab on the lower suspension arm. The thing with an anti-sway bar is you need to couple it to the suspension and body as best as can be managed to minimise compliance. This approach seemed like the anti-sway bar was made to go over the top of the thrust rod and at the angle that I have with the spacer made to be so the angles are perfect for the washer stack and bolt to transmit the suspension movement to the bar as cleanly as possible. As they are passive the better the coupling the more anti-roll you will get for the foot-pounds of twist that you can put into the bar under hard cornering.

Notice the welded in plate on the frame and cool washer face headed hex bolts. This puts a bit more smoosh on the bushing to couple the bar to the chassis better than the weird U-bolts were capable of.

Picture of my method for spreading the inner fender panel out to match the Mk1 fender I aquired from Brithish Masters over the week end.
