This is extremely reassuring news to me. I was somewhat concerned when I saw the beam replacement is pressure treated wood. Modern lumber is nothing like what was used in 1927.
Now, being the picky person I am, I am hoping they aren't using phillips head screws on any visible fasteners (yes, I know I saw many of them on her back when we rode her & it bothered me then). Phillip head screws did not come into use until 1934, and then almost entirely used on automobiles. I used to restore Rolls-Royces, so I KNOW I am very picky about such details. We would have to line up the slots on the screws so they all matched even! (required careful shimming sometimes)
