Which PrePro are you shooting for? NorCalCap did PP2 and it turned out great. If I recall PP2 shares a lot of similarities with PP1 but I am by no means an expect. You can find his build thread here PP2 Fett project start-up
His thread may have a lot of the information you are looking for. Are you planning on doing the pupil PP1 or the jaig "ears" PP1?? Cause I would suggest the jaig "ears" version for sure lol

Hey hopefully you see this,

Pre Pro 1 looks like a fun suit to do, not a really common suit people do so you should totally go for it. I recommend reaching out to jbdubz as he knows the details fairly well between the Pre Pros rigs.

For paint, I recommend Fett 4 Real , jbdubz , Major , superjedi or Darth Voorhees (I dont know if he still paints or not)

Here's some starting points as I've had to search for these for my Pre Pro #2 build I'm currently doing.

The Circle Patches:

United states army command patch --- US Army 7th Division patch
The patches come in 3 variants but you'll want either the olive green or tan ones. I'm not sure what the standard is but I believe the tan are more accurate due to dye test I've done while getting my brown base down for my gloves, then comparing them to my references.

The blaster:

You have some options like 3D printing, like RafalFett models. I know Stormrider should be working on a sling gun kit.
However, if you have some patience, you can find most of the real parts on ebay. The pistol handle and shoulder stock are Kaiser camera holders, while the barrel is a Hand Telescope. The barrel holder and under barrel attachments that you see in the references were fabricated for the gun and were no real part that we know of.

Gloves

I recommend getting Dent's brand...100% cotton. They are top quality. the dye job on them differs from the pre pro 2, as Pre Pro 1 appears to be more of a darker brown then a lighter brown. So maybe seek a dark brown, or chocolate brown dye. As for the padding details, not sure on the fabric.

Hope this helps, and if you come back to build one, def make a build thread!

Great tips right there Brokk. I would also suggest going with the tan version of the patches as they are closer to the actual Pre-Pro 1 coloring. If you can't find them though you can always fix it up with a little acrylic paint.
