I'm probably going to build the Fun Projects jig and re-spoke my the wheels on my '24 Touring.

They're the 21" wheels with steel felloes.

I've heard there are minor differences in spokes and that they don't all fit wheels from different manufacturers. Is this true?

Any other advice for me as I start stockpiling supplies for this project?

Yes, that's true. Check with Lang's as to the minor differences and they'll get you steered right.

Also buy a full set of the GOOD grade hub bolts.

Don if you have the latest Langs catalog most if not all the information you'll need is in their catalog page 30.

Hopefully your car has matching steel felloe's. Your felloes will determine what kind of spokes you'll need.

I ordered a Lang's catalog when I bought the car but they're backordered on them for the time being.

Is there a stamping/part#/etc on the steel felloes that I can look for?

Shucks...
you will need to copy and paste the second link...I did something wrong, as it is not a "live link".

Good information for you on both threads. Enjoy !
