If you want to use Pac Bay components, simply go to their web site, take a look at the reel seats and guides they have, and have your friend get the ones you like. Thread comes in a huge number of colors, so pick the thread color you like keeping in mind that it will darken when finish is applied.
But there are also other manufacturers than Pac Bay (Struble, REC, American Tackle, Fuji, Hopkins & Holloway to mention a few) who may just have what you are looking for. In other words, unless your friend only uses Pac Bay components, you really ought to take a look at components from other manufacturers as well. Afterall, it is your rod.
