Default 1940 convertible restoration started

Well I'm pretty excited, I was just talking to someone the other day about my dream car, a 40 vert, and guess what within a couple days I own one, the exterior is really nice however the floor pans are really bad. The car came with an extra front floor but it seems some bolt holes are missing, what I did discover was factory made dimples where holes should be (how convenient) see in the photo just below the two holes, now I have to do some research on best way to replace the pan and what kind of spacers belong between the frame and pan all the while keeping the doors aligned, any good books on 40 restorations or other sites anybody can recommend? Thanks
