Welcome Tom. Wow, 40 years later you are ready to start!

I used the original top hat frame in my 37 so I can't comment on the Fatman frame but I am sure it would be nice to start with something new. Are you planning on building a corner carver or a cruiser, that may help your decision. If you stay with the original frame check out Chassis Engineering for parts.

I am not a fan of using junkyard parts for steering, braking or suspension parts. That is my opinion, I'm sure it has worked for others but for my families safety I prefer new parts in those areas.

Like Matt said check out the 37/38 Chevys Owner thread in the Hotrodders Lounge. There are several helpful people there.
