Body - Exterior, '32 Ford Roadster

If there is a VERY DETAILED manual available somewhere on how to assemble a '32 Ford Roadster I and many other first time builders could sure use it. I hate this "hit & miss, trial by error" build method. For instance, what is the best method of fastening the steel firewall to my Brookville body? If I include the rubber seal between the body cowl and firewall that seems to rule out welding. What do you experienced builders recommend?

I know of NO DETAILED manual ...

It is a lot of trial and error ... or was for me ...
The firewall has three bolt holes on each foot ... and they need to be bolted to the chassis. There are a few bolts in the cowl area that locate the firewall ...

Firewall to Body

Sorry for the reply delay. At my age I'm a little slow these days. Thanks for the most valued feedback with photos. That answered my question and prevented an assembly error on my part.
