1960 F100 rebuild/restore
 
I've been reading these messages and it seems that there are alot of you out there that have been through what I am now beginning to start. I have a big back window, short bed, stepside 1960 F100. I want to:
1. install 351W or 351M
2. install C6
3. rewire
4. install power disc brakes at all corners. i don't want to change
ride height because... well, just because.
5. install power steering
6. install new steering column
7. redo interior
8. paint
My question is this: In what order should I do these mods to be the most efficient? The truck is not running now. Of course I know to do the mechanical before paint and interior, but what should I do 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.? Thanks for any input.

i would start with the steering and the brakes at the same time.
then move on to the engine-tranny swap.
then the wiring.
then the paint and body.
and last but not least, the interior.
