    4. Upper & middle off - all 3 coils are in series, but both coils in hot rail is reversed.

    The connections to the three switches look okay. Much then depends on the quality of the switches themselves. I would be tempted to replace the 1Meg pots with A500k or, even, A440-ish.

    Gonna use Fender ones to be sure.
    By the way, what the wire coming from the tone pot right outer leg is responsible for?

    In the stock circuit, the wire that you describe carries the signal from the three slider switches to the Lead Circuit controls. (The route is somewhat unusual.) For your circuit design, this wire is superfluous.
