Re: Project O.G. - My First Ever Build

I've decided to rebuild the truck as sort of an upgraded factory style driver for now. By "upgraded" I mean adding power steering, 5-lug and power disc brakes which weren't offered in 1970. I plan to keep the truck factory height with factory 15x6 steelies and original dog dish caps and I need some help with sourcing parts and factory finishes while keeping a budget in mind where I can i.e ECE vs Rock Auto or best quality supplier of suspension, steering and braking parts etc.

I was planning on using the ECE front disc conversion kit for 5-lug factory height which utilizes conversion spindles so that I could keep all my front end parts of 69-70 vintage so it would be less confusing when I need replacement parts in the future.

Any assistance with the above decisions would be greatly appreciated. I just want to make sure I have all my bases covered before I start tearing things appart.
