O/T I am getting a new project

Now that the Jeep is running good looking good I am in need of a new project. I have always been a hot rod fan and now I am the proud owner of a 1929 Model A Roadster Pick-up. It may not look like much now but I have a good imagination. The guy I am buying it from is doing some work on the body since I can not weld. He stretched the body 4" inches to give me some room. He also stretched the frame to accommodate the extra room. He is going to replace all the rust and shoot the body and bed with black primer. The frame sports a real Dago front axle, late 50s Mopar disc brakes, Ford 8 rear hung by ladder bars and coil springs. The front half of the frame is boxed. The body is channeled approx. 3-4. I get the body rolling chassis, 327 SBC and Powerglide. I should be able to pick it up in about 3 weeks. My plan is to paint it black suede, put in a TH350, do red steel wheels, red tuck and roll interior, Deuce grille shell, raked windshield and powder coat the chassis and suspension parts. I am just about excited as this as I was when I bought my Jeep. Here is a pic of my new project.
