Newbie "Need Help"

Well first and for most hello all I'd like to introduce myself I'm a drummer who is building a custom guitar for my fathers 41st birthday. Its his first guitar and it is beat. I found it in the attic the other day and it gave me the idea. Things you ight need to know, I think its a mid 70's global strat copy but I could be wrong It deffinetly needs some internal work I have it all torn down parts in bags body is being preped for paint I want to replace the pickups for it and I ordered a new neck plate, tuner pegs, and a box of misc hardware. This is uncharted territory for me so any advice about this guitar and what needs to be done and done on a budget. Thanks all for any good feedback you leave. Posting pictures start to finish

First of all this needs to be the GB&C section. Second check out guitarfetish.com this place will be your best friend if you need solid parts as cheap as possible. For the neckplate though if you want to make things a little more personal you can order a custom engraved neck plate from guitarheads.net pretty cheaply.

Otherwise we would need more information, maybe even pictures of everything to really tell you what all will need to be done.
