The A's and T of that period are probably the 'easiest 'to reproduce as they were actually built in small pieces at the factory as initially they didn't have the big presses. Hence why early cars have big fabric roof inserts Wink  Looking good Chris Smiley

Yeah, I'd go with the slightly thicker stuff if it's mostly flat or large curves. Floor doesn't have to be that thick if it's got enough bracing under it or some stiffening beads or ribs rolled/pressed/bashed into it.

Just a bit ! Cheesy

For floor panels you could consider marine ply (WBP)

Used exterior grade ply on mine, as it's going to be fully sealed anyway, and it was a lot cheaper (already had it  Cheesy )
