I like the look of the old paint. Besides, paint doesn't make them run any better.
The best advice I can give you is: research, research, research. I have yet to see 2 CrewCab conversions done the same way, but each one I looked at gave me good ideas for mine. I started gathering up parts right after I bought the truck, and it sure helps make the project flow easier. There is a wealth of knowledge on this site, so if you have any concerns, don't be shy. I'll be watching your thread.
