My advice is to sit down and really think of what you want out of your new baby. Original, resto mod, a little of both? Once you have decided what you want make a plan. Stick with that plan. Too many times I have seen people change their builds mid point and loose thousands of dollars. Even if you buy a part new, and change your mind , the part is used and you are not going to get what you paid for it back out of it.
So my advice is plan out your build. God Speed, and welcome to the addiction.
