First x0x, ordering parts, sanity check please!

Hi all,

I've got a bit of experience doing electronics projects and such but it's limited. I'm ordering my x0x parts based on Willzyx's Mouser cart, and I've already ordered a kit from Willzyx.

Two things that I want to sanity check:
1. LEDs.
* I'm planning to get these LEDs (based off another helpful Willzyx suggestion): https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/604-WP7113HD
* and these resistors to go with them: https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/60 ... JT-52-470K

Does that seem like a fine choice? I'm not familiar with the different types of resistors, but I did make sure they're through hole & 5K.
I assume I should get a couple spares, would 2-3 spares be suitable, assuming I don't destroy the parts myself?

2. Substitutions
A few parts are backordered on Mouser, so I was going to try to make some substitutions. Frankly, I'm kind of confused about the difference between parts that seem identical but have different prices. Anyway…
At this time, the following parts are backordered:
1. https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/652-3362P-1-504LF
2. https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/581-TAP105M035SCS
3. https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/14 ... M2CBK0511P
4. https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/14 ... M1ABK1012P

Here's what I'm thinking to substitute:
1. https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/3362H-1-504LF
2. https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/TAP105M035SRW
3. https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/UVR2C010MED
4. https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/UVR1A102MPD1TD

The last one of the substitutions, unfortunately, has a lower rated lifetime, so maybe I should buy something like these instead which have a higher ripple current and lifetime: https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/EEU-FC1A102

Thanks in advance for your help and feedback. Looking forward to getting squelchy soon!

Hey all, I posted to Reddit and basically got the advice I was seeking – Just find similarly rated components. I’m proceeding with my build.
