Belly Pan and Side Wrap Questions

This is for a 1992 29' Excella.

The Shell is off. The frame repairs are nearly complete. It's time to order Belly Pan and Side Wrap materials. And, I'd like some help.

When I removed the water tanks, belly pan, banana wrap and side wrap, everything came off in that order. I was hoping I might be able to install the belly pan and water tanks while I can manipulate the frame, so, before the side wraps.

I'm open to suggestions on materials, tools, work aids, tips and tricks from those who've come before me or have some good general knowledge of whats involved. Like for instance what type and gauge of aluminum, How many Cleco fasteners and pliers. Best type of Rivets, That kind of stuff, you know everything!

Here are some before, during and after shots of the frame:

It's not 100% done. I still need to paint the tongue and the exposed areas of the frame the more carbon tone that is Airstream gray, but we're getting there.
