I gotta ask

I know nothing beats a good frame, but I see these Kentrol Fiberglass Body Tubs made of fiberglass/steel & wood.

Manufacturer claims it can add strength to the frame. This isn't true...is it?
I understand there has to be a limit to how bad the rust is.

So, true, false or sometimes?

Make the frame stronger, I doubt that. It could give it more rigidity, that is to limit the flex, especially flex associated with engine torque. Insofar as increasing the load limit of a frame, like i said, doubtful.

Ridged perhaps, maybe less twisting.. not sure.. not a fan of fiberglass tubs myself.

Yeah, Someone told what I said in my OP & I misread the description of the tub. My mistake.
