You can find a lot of nice C record era components without getting robbed for deltas; Athena or Chorus are excellent choices also...

The missus has a lovely Chorus group on this:

I replaced the campag brake levers with Shimano as they are easier to get a grip and feel for small hands.

Yeah, I agree, in fact, weren't the 2nd gen SR calipers part of the Record group during before or after the Deltas?

Athena and Chorus calipers are things of beauty.

I like the mix on your partner's Master, Chorus rear, Record crank & NR calipers though the Shimano levers do tend to stand out. Weren't the Corsa levers a better choice for the smaller mitts?

even I struggled with the levers! cranks are lovely 165 mm, 50/39

If I remember correctly, the red labels didn't go out until the mid 80s, and the new style labels came in from the mid 80s on. So I don't think the current red labels would look out of place. Indeed, I think they would match the Super Record kit better than the newer ones.
