New street rod project

Hello all, I just bought a project car. It's a 1941 chev coupe roller, with a pretty rusty floor, and rather straight outside body sheet metal. I'm trying to put together a build plan for this car, and am asking for your input. I am very good with all the usuall body and fender tools, and procedures. I have a shop with a lift, plasma cutter, torch, and mig welder. I'v done a lot of classic cars, but never really a fabriactaed hor rod before. Seems to me this car needs a lot, but I belive it all should be based on the drive line and suspension. I have a 1979 Corvette small block, a 12 bolt posi (already in the car) But the car needs all the suspension redone. I have been reading a lot about the MII verses the S-10 swap. What are the pros and cons of the two? What about the "clip option? Thanks for any advice. The work is one thing, the money these days is another. But, I want the car to be right, in the end. You guys have done these beforew. What's really the best way to go? I have access to a salvage action where I can buy just about anything in the way of complete cars, trucks, ect.
