Lots of ways to approach a rebuild/resto but the main thing is to have a plan for what you want your truck to be. I've always like the twin headlights but one never came my way when I was searching.
One thing I have preached to my everyday, and Stovebolt buddies, is to do at least 15 minutes EVERY day. It is amazing what will get done and your accomplishments will be motivators to keep at it. It is a process and it takes time and money so be committed to it when you start.
This may be new to some folks...and not everyone can do it, but on my last build, my panel, I prepared each piece as I took it apart. When the fenders came off they were blasted and coated and put up....then the next piece and then the next. I always had some parts finished and some ready to finish. Sometime I just took the time and ordered some "small stuff" each month and stored them. Then, the day I finished blasting the chassis and coating it I had all the stuff to put it back together.....in the end, it was satisfying/fun, to take it apart and work on it...and fun putting it back together.
...ok, I've said enough.
Good luck and, as you mentioned, post questions in the garage forum and let us help you along the journey.
