I have a 1979 El camino I'd like to know when strapping the frame what part of the frame needs to be strapped. Even thow I know having it rapped would be the best way to go, I'm just posing nothng too crazy, eventually 3 wheel pause. what is considered as sterss points.

i would recomend welding 1/4" plate down the outsides of the ENTIRE length of the frame... thats just my opinion... cause wherever the plating stops is where the stress always starts

i dissagree with your statement..''wherever the plate stopps the stress begins'' this is false.. even though u have plate reinforcement.. you will always have the same amount of stress in the same areas.. the reiforecement simply makes the frame able to handle it..

i agree with what your saying but basically you knew what i meant... the fact is where you stop reinforcing is gonna be the first place most likely to break or bend..
