Smile Getting Ready

Hello Ford Truckers!

My father gave me his old Ford truck about 10 years ago. He's since passed away and I still have the old truck. I'd like to fix it up and keep it in the family. I know everyone would appreciate that. It's an 89 F150. I was thinking of doing the following;

1 Repaint - the paint is mostly powder all over. If you lean on it, you're red.
2 Lower it. - I wanted to get a lowering kit and lower it 2 or 3 inches. Not much.
3 New engine- The old one still runs good. It's got 102G's on it. But I was thinking of replacing it with a new/rebuilt classic engine and a 3 or 4 speed manual transmission. (It's automatic on the column now)
4 New interior - I wanted to get new bucket seats but not bucket-bucket. Something sporty but comfy. New carpet to go with the seats.
5 New glass - the windshield is cracked, the back glass comes out and the window don't work. I'd also like to replace the headlights, taillights and well I guess that's all the glass.
6 Tires and wheels. I wanted something sporty, chrome and low profile but not so much that I can haul anything.

Do any of you have suggestions from doing your own trucks that you can pass on? I might end up keeping the engine and transmission, but getting everything else done first. But I think that would make it more complete and a nice ride all around. Let me know what you think. I'll post photos of before and after. OH! and I'd get a personalized plate that says' "Dad'sTruck", if that's possible.

thanks for your help and glad to be here. By the way, the truck is running good and I drive it as often as I can. Especially to mom's.
