You may want to consider a Saginaw (chevy) power sterring pump before you get to far along,
they are just notorious for sucking...I had a 78 Cougar - pump whined...I had an 87 mustang - pump whined.
http://www.wt4x4.net/tech/saginawswap.htm
this is a great write up...you will need a new Hi-pressure hose but that should be fairly cheap.
If you haven"t cleaned your injectors...now is a good time.
Take a 9 volt battery and some alligator clips and hook the battery the positive and negative side of each injector...you will hear a clicking sound...then spray your favorite throttle body cleaner thru it.
the injectors rarely fail...however they do get gummed up after sitting for a long time.
last I would recommend replacing as many sensors with New sensors as your buget will allow.

I used the late model Ford pump (88 Mustang) on my SBF setup. I wanted all the brackets from that Mustang to run A/C as well. I did however replace with new rebuilt pump since everything else was new on the motor.. No whining and works great....

That there is a saginaw power steering pump, as stated several post before put that on your 302 along with that AC compressor. Makes a great air pump.

POR 15- from what I've heard. I didn't, now wish I had. And my PS pump- late 80's Crown Vic- constantly whines.

I hear ya..I didn't do any research yet but does the POR require much prep and stripping before being applied? I don't have much rust, just paint and grease.

Total cleaning is the big thing- once again, from what I've read. I would think the whole kit from them would be good.
I did use Monstaliner inside the tub (check their website- that's the RustBucket)- got clean except for 2 spots, both of which are popped loose.
I researched that move a whole lot better than painting the frame.

According to the MFG, this stuff loves to go right over rust.
however the rust and or paint need to be clean and dry...no grease, they recommend their marine clean
to get rid of any dirt, grease, residue and then their Metal prep ( sort of a primer) supposed to give
alot of bite for the POR to hold onto.
Since you only have a few spots i would think you could get it all done for around $50.

I have a few spots my self I need to hit but I'm a rattle can junkie,
I've heard good things about Zero Rust.

This past weekend I sold the old 258 for $475, so I was happy about that, now I have more Jeep fund$..bought this HF engine hoist for $99. Figured I couldn't go wrong, so now I don't need to borrow my buddy's anymore.
