51 Chev Rod.. Anyone done one?

A buddy of mine is wanting me to help him build a street rodded '51 Chevy Pickup.. He already has the truck, and it is pretty clean, with minimal rust and a good looking older resto.It already has a 327, 3 speed, floor shift and 12 bolt in it. He wants to go with a 350 HP rebuild, 700R4 tranny, Digital gages, Mustang II Heidt's suspension kit, etc, etc..
Has anyone done this and got any hot tips, suggestions, etc?
So far the main question seems to be whether to do the coil over suspension or the standard coil sprung suspension, and how to get six lug front rotors to match the rear axle he has.
This is gonna be fun, spending somebody else's money on a toy!
Any help appreciated!
