    Depends entirely on what the frame is for!

    Trailer: mild steel angle. GoKart: 4130 tube. And so on...

    I made a Lotus 7 frame (locost) out of 1" 16ga square tube.

    That's what the 'plans' call for.

    Couldn't find any completed pics, but only a few more bars and I was 'finished' with this one. I say finished, but I just made the basic structure and sold it on ebay. The new owner will have 10 times as much work to get a roadworthy car.




    Here's an earilier pic in my messy garage:



    A locost is a scratch built replica of a Lotus 7. They put all sorts of small engines in them, and the result is a light, fast, small car.

    Google locost (or ask me) for more info.
