Been there! I have already done most of the things on your list and I have a new body box-doors-fenders-cab corners-rockers sitting in my garage waiting for spring. I have a guy who is going to do the bodywork and paint for cash and I'm the first one on the list once it warms up enough to paint.Oh yeah, how could i forget. Currently truck "BOUNCES" down the road. LOL! Shocks!
My best advice is shop around for parts Autozone, advance auto, oreileys, amazon ebay and rock auto. I have used all of these sources buying parts. Many times one was way cheaper than another source for the same part.
Here is the gas tank assembly link, so far I'm impressed! I researched Spectra premium and I liked what I saw. All their stuff is made in Canada and has excellent reviews. They are probably the best aftermarket fuel tanks and radiators. I got a Spectra radiator too, that came from rockauto.
I got really lucky on body parts. Somebody drove a beautifully rust free 2000 GMC Sonoma to my neck of the woods from Tennessee and promptly blew the engine. I got the box and both doors, they are perfect!
You can see the box in my gas tank replacement picture from January.
