Hey all,
I'm usually posting in the 55-57 area as I'm mid way through a 55 post frame off resto mod. However, I find myself with a possible 38' pickup purchase. I've browsed the web looking for info such as parts availability, common mods, and restoration discussion, but my returns have been limited. The truck has been in a barn for quite some time but it looks like a worthy project. Most everything is intact.

What are the common sheet metal areas to replace?

What are the common suspension upgrades? Will a late model s-10 chassis fit under the cab and bed?

When I make the trip to look at it, Where should I focus my attention and what degree of rust would serve as a "no go" situation?

thanks for any help.
