34 ford coupe

Hello,
Hopefully this is in the right place,
I've decided to start a project, a 34 ford coupe. I have great pleasure in working metal and the real point of this project for myself is making the body and frame myself from metal. i've been passing my night looking on the net of pictures of 34 coupes and find the shapes particularly simple(could be mistaken ALOT here..)

the reason of this post is to know if anyone has blueprints or know where i can get some for either the body or the frame.

A question to people who know much about body work.
If i did the body panels in a few pieces and weld them together, do i weaken the panel allot or is it pretty much have the same Resistance. (the welds would be located at joints.)

Also a second question. I was told that metal for body is set between 20-22 gage steel, is it correct?

thanks.
-david.
