Strip Down & Rebuild blog

Does anyone have a link to a strip down, chassis re-powder coat & reskin, and then rebuild blog? My 2006 k series is looking a bit tired after being driven in all weathers and me not being much of a polisher. I quite fancy a 'project' and was wondering what some of the challenges might be, what sort of time scale, cost etc and i thought reading someone's previous experience might be useful. I'm not a million miles from Arch which makes it marginally easier.

While I am pretty practical (DIY, cycle mechanics, and woodwork) car mechanics are a bit of a closed book to me, but I like to think I could manage.

Thanks

I've not a blog, but I've got plenty of pictures and notes, and would be happy to talk you through my project which I completed in March this year.

Thank you both. Aeroscreens - I can see that this morning is going to be unproductive at work as I read through that 'not really a blog' :) . Tom, I may well drop you a BM later today.
