First time replacing a trunk

Very soon I'm going to be replacing the trunk on my '58 chevy.
I've never done this before so I need to ask for pointers.
The car is currently off the frame so I have access to as much as possible.
My question is, since I'm going to be replacing the trunk floors, the trunk wells (inner quarters), the outer lower quarters, and the gas tank bracing, what order should I proceed in?

I was thinking: Trunk Floor, gas tank braces, rear body mounts first. That should give me a solid foundation to attach the inner quarters or wells. Then I'll be all set for the outer lower quarters.

What do you all think?
