Default Guide to replace wood in a touring car

I am looking at a '24 touring that someone had installed new wood in the body, however, everything is badly done. The wood was attached with carriage bolts. Is there a video, tutorial or other type of guide on how to properly replace the wood in a touring car? I want to see what I will be getting into if I decide to buy the car and do everything over.

Thanks.

Not really re the videos and tutorias. Might take a look at You Tube. There is stuff on the web but you will need to search it out. Fordwood.com has some good drawings and there has been stuff posted on the Model T Ford Club of America over the years. Even kits need to be fitted, so you do have to have some skill and wood working tools along with a place to work. If it's a major redo the sheet metal has to come off and will need fittings as you go along.

Thank you. Youtube was the first place I checked but couldn't find what I was looking for. I did come across a book from one of the parts vendors "Antique Auto Body Wood Work For The Restorer". I am going to order the book, it looks like it might have the info I need.
