My question is this: Can anyone recommend a resto shop to do some work to this thing?

I'd like to get a modern front suspension with disk brakes and new wheels. Need to get a clean and running engine. Needs some seats and door panels.

I'm not looking for a show truck. I want a driver.

Easiest is the S10 conversion several companies sell the bracket kits so you can use the newer suspension and frame. Here's one example... http://www.ebay.com/i/121998809630?chn=ps
