    Depends on a couple of things. If you have aftermarket upper control arms you might be able to get a wrench on the bolt head. Also you could tack weld the bolt head to the frame.

    A 7" single diaphragm booster is pretty weak, almost no boost. A double diaphragm 7" would be only a slight improvement. An 8" double diaphragm booster is what you need.

    Looks pretty darned good.

    The only thing I'd add as a goal is to have 1/4° more caster on the passenger side. This would compensate for the typical crown in the road.

    You definitely have "metric". Metric was used on early 80s Malibu and similar cars, as well as many years of S10 pickups and similar vehicles.

    There is really nothing special about a VA system relative to systems on other cars except that it fits your car. So anyone that's skilled with automotive a/c should be able to work on it.

    You have a master cylinder built for either manual brakes or a 60s booster. Get one for a 70s and later power booster. I think a 72 Chevelle one with power brakes would work for you.
