Update:

Nautel shipped my client a new VS2.5 and it was installed last night by the local staff with no drama at all. Up and running great and we will see if it stays that way - my bet is that it will be trouble free for years to come.

If it doesn't, call me. I'll make it a point to swing by in person on the way by some day (after snow season ends up here). :)

Grounding looks good by the way - only question I had is are your tower ground rods and the AC ground connected together? That was the only thing I didn't see answered in your explanation. If they aren't, you've got a fixed resistance of ground resistance per foot times however many feet between the two ground rods across which to develop a potential when 10kA+ of lightning energy jumps across the ball gaps and starts looking for places to dissipate. :)

I avoided commenting on the rest of the thread, as I'm kind of biased when it comes to Nautel vs. GA opinions - although I will chime into say that Flash's demise, while not imminent, is well underway on our end. :D
