MK2 to MK2S Upgrade list

I have a MK2 but would like to upgrade to MK2S. Does anyone have the parts list I would need. I would hate to come up short during the upgrade. I was wondering is there are any thing else additional like screws etc.

I currently have the following list:

-U-Bolts 1 set (contains 3)

-Smooth Rods (1 set of rods)

-Bearings LM8UU (10x)

Personally, I prefer the SKF bearings.  SKF LBBR-8-2LS bearings are stiffer than LM8UU bearings.  They have 8 races touching the rods vs the 4 races touching the smooth rods.

and an 8 inch (200mm) or greater caliper is recommended.
