What is a good modern source for replacing the metal tape and if I can't find a replacement shield can I at least ground the tape to the metal on the board that the shield attaches to?

You don't need the same exactly stuff as before. All you really need is a decent size piece of wire to solder the outer casing of each switch and then eventually solder that down to the RF ground plain somewhere. But if you really want to use foil tape like before, then you can just buy a small roll of Chrome repair tape from an autoparts store and cut it as needed. It is basically the same stuff.
