Thanks mate for your feedback,
yes im building it as a weekend drivers car, just wanting the car to drive well, have good power but be comfortable enough and reliable enough that if and when i want to take a country drive i can.

i have a Jaguar front suspension which came with the truck, all i need to do is fit it, i also have the jaguar rear but apparently the guys tell me that they dont think it will handle any serious horsepower so rathe i should opt for a ford 9" rear, but they ae very difficult to find here in South Africa.

been looking at a a few options of importing a four link rear from the states as well as a few other items i am going to need from the states.
i have both the 48 front and the 54 front and i think im going to build the truck with the 54 front as i like the style of it, just need to import a new grill as the one i have is fine for paint but dont think i can get it cleaned up right fo chrome.

so many options...............
i would appreciate any idvise i can et from you as you have done what im about to, and im sure have learned so much along the way.
if you have any tips and pick of your truck, would love to see them.
take care
