1949 Ford Body Dimensions

Hello to all. I hope someone can help. I am looking at a 49 ford to buy and it is a 4 dr. I want to make it to a 2 dr. and lower the lid . I need info on the length of 2 dr doors. Starting from the hinge side measure at the bottom, middle, and top of the doors . I also need to know the overall door opening from hingeplate panel to stricker plate panel. If anybody can send me a link to a site or has one and can take a few measurement that would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time ..aw1950
