My '51 F1 build (Updated Old Skool Hot Rod)

I've been a member for quite some time doing research for an early F1 build. I finally found one and the restoration is pretty far along. I need a few parts and can't make a post until I have more posts so I thought now would be a good time to start this thread.

I looked at several truck over the past year and found this one within 2 hours of my home. The guy was about 95% complete with the restoration but he was an amatuer and doing a very low budget build. Most everythign I saw was so rusted I thought this was the best one to start with.

I am making an Old school looking hot rod, i.e. flat black paint with a little Von Dutch style accents, red and black interior, and red steel wheels with wide wall tires. However, although it will look old school from the outside I am updating it with a Mustang II suspension, Vintage air, disk brakes, gas tank under the bed....you get the idea.

Here are a few pictures when I found it:
