    I may be in the minority, but I actually kinda like the west coast style mirrors.

    Make wooden detachable side rails, so you can remove them to load pallets/equipment. I'd paint the bed, rails, rims, grille & mirrors all black. Now you will have a nice looking truck. Also upgrade to tail/clearance lights to LEDs down the road.

    I like the idea of the wooden sides, and painting everything. Get the whole truck painted if you can find a good deal?

    Why? It looks to me like the paint on the cab is in pretty good shape. I'd say add the factory chrome grille, get the bed blasted and painted and build some sides.
