auto to manual conversion

i've got an 86 chevy c10 with mild mods done to it and i've had help with issues on here in the past so i fugred i'd give it a shot again. i'm thinkin about puttin a 4 speed in it. its currently got a turbo 350 but i've always loved straight drive old trucks i just dont know everything i'll need. i know a general amount of what i'll need but not everyting and the work it would include. any suggestions or help or ideas about the project would be grealy appreciated. keep in mind its my daily driver tho so we cant do nothin to crazy.

This is going to be a long laundry list of things so hang on to your hat.

Pedal assembly with both pedals because the one you have is too wide
Return spring for clutch pedal
Bell crank assembly for the clutch linkage
Bellhousing with release bearing and clutch fork
Floor shifter with all linkage and wiring for backup lights
Maybe a new transmission mounting crossmember
Maybe a new drive shaft because the two transmissions are not the same lengths
New fly wheel and pilot bushing to fit along with new bolts
Clutch disk
Pressure plate with bolts
Replace steering column to remove the transmission pointer and shift lever.
Good Luck
