I don't have answers for you , but I am replacing the wood in my 34 pontiac with steel. Everything in the pontiac was wood, all the pillars and structure. The toughest part I guess is re-attaching the door jamb steel plates so that the fit and finish looks somewhat original. I am using sqaure steel tubing that mostly matches the original dimensions(1", 1.25",1.5"). I guess I will then shim the original steel pieces and tack them in place. It is going to be a long process. The biggest thing pacing me is deciding what to do with the surface rust on the inside of the body before I put steel structure back over it, covering most of it up from future access.
