i think the most expensive thing would be an orginal floyd rose (like 210$) but i believe liscensed it just as fine...much cheaper and i guess a Seymour Duncan "Custom Custom" is the pickup to use if not an EVH one (also by Seymour Duncan) yeah sorry not much help i would to show a pic of mine but its a Squier Strat (lefty) with a floyd-rose (also lefty SO HARD TO FIND) texas Neck pickup a Seymour Duncan Hot rails in the Middle and a Dimarzio Evolution at the bridge...anyway sorry about not bein much help....

The paintjob would be pretty easy, I mean its not like the original design was neat and perfect, and it wouldn't cost much if you used automotive spray paints. Now ask me if I think it's a bold and original paintjob which is bound to get you noticed....
My gear;

Custom HSS Strat (eBay'ed parts)
Fender Acoustic
DOD EQ
EH Big Muff
Home-made Wah
Home-made Booster

I'm begging you not to do it, if i saw someone other than Eddie playing one, i would laugh at them, no matter how good.

A customised paintjob should remain individual, it looks ridiculous when all these kids start putting the same thing onto their guitars, like those bloody ZW signature Gibbo's and Epi's.

the forum at www.eddievanhalen.com has lots of info and pictures on the 5150


Not to mention some of the best replica builders I've ever come across. I swear Dino and Frankenstraat aren't human.
