Looks like that will be a very nice project. Looks like the motor should be good to go with out to much problems. I'm wondering what model Chev that is with the camper on it in a earlier post? My Dad had a Chevy Cheyenne back when I was a kid.

DIY seat cover. Tammy and I decided to take on fixing up the original seat for our 46 Dodge truck. I did some welding on the frame and fixed the springs, then cleaned and painted it. Then we worked together to recover. I first used a PVC screen material sewn to the top to even out the springs in place of the old burlap, then a dense fiberfill matting for softening. We thought about vinyl for the cover, and stll might at some point, but used a bolt of material Tammy had on hand. It's denim. We'll take the seat back out and store it until it's ready to go in and stay, but wanted to try it out once first!

I like it!  Nothing like using what's on hand.  I much prefer a cloth seat to vinyl/leather.

Its a long ways from the road. I have to get a master cylinder and all new brake lines. I've not had a wheel off yet to see what the brakes them selves look like. Right now, it's mostly just art.  :D

Are you going to upgrade the brakes to 4 wheel disk or keep drums on the corners and your Flintstones emergency floor braking spot, that I saw in one of the other pics ?

The existing style brake system designed for a truck destined never to go over 50 miles per hour should be adequate. The emergency brake system is a driveshaft brake.  The big hole in thee floor is not a hole. It is the battery area that does not have a cover on it. The floor itself is completely solid.
