Floorpan Fab questions

I just got the body back on my freshly boxed frame with a rollbar and now it's time to get some floor/firewall installed. The car is completely hollow and I am debating on aluminum versus steel. I have no idea how to pick materials (What type and thickness/hot rolled/cold rolled, etc). I would also like to get opinions on attachment points - the car has been channeled about 6" and I don't know where to attach the floor pans to the side of the body (the very bottom of the rocker panel beneath the door?). Also, is there any advantage on leaving the body removable? I'll gladly post some pics if it helps. I have some basic tools (welder and basic handtools), but I don't have a roller or any idea about what kind of shear i'll need to do this. The car is a 34 Plymouth coupe. ANy help is greatly appreciated. Looks like 08 is the year to get this thing rolling again!
