DNA rigid frame question.

Hey guys,

I have searched and searched this forum and many others and still can't find a definite answer on what material DNA uses for their frames. I need to know what filler metal to use so I can weld on my 250 rigid project. I've read that they use a combination of chromoly and other various types of tubing. No where that I have read has been any help.

I know someone will be able to point me in the right direction!

Thanks in advance,
Brent

I did, I'm still waiting on an answer.

I was surprised that I was able to speak with someone. A lady picked up and transferred me to someone who might know. The guy I talked to knew nothing about the frame and took my name and number.

Hopefully I will hear back from him soon.

Thanks for the reply, John!

Do you know if any companies are using chromoly? Or is that more for roll cages..

Chrome moly is stronger and more expensive. In race cars we use chrome moly in thinner wall to reduce weight. Typically Moly is more brittle though and not great for the street. See article below
