Boxing frame, weld it all or skip weld it?

Whats the preferred way? Should it be skip welded for some flexability, or completly welded?

Thanks.

The frame on my 34 that the Roadster shop built has a fully boxed, fully welded frame. Frames I have seen from TCI, and Pete & Jakes are also fully welded. Henry Ford believed in flexible frames, but he never dreamed of 500hp V8's in his frames.

Skip welded is just as strong and easier to do, fully welded is done mainly for looks and a slight strength advantage...very slight.
