Thank you for a more knowledgeable, useful opinion Eddie.Mild steel frames really don't need stress relieving if you know how to weld them properly
I have built midget and full sized sprint cars using 1020,1025 seamless tubing without any
problems. Mild steel tubing tends to take vibrations and crack less than harder steels.
Piper cubs also used mild steel tubing as did most of the pre and post war II small planes
of that period. Mig welding would be better than gas welding,with regards to frame stress.
My respect for you continues to grow.
