Adding angle iron to frame for wood planks, weld or bolt?

I want to add angle iron under my Roo for storing my wood planks. Should I weld or bolt? I figure 4 7 foot angles between the frame should hold my planks.

Sure some we disagree. Personally I weld. Don't overheat or damage the structure but get proper fusion.

Bolts holes are a hole in the frame unless u clamp somehow. I don't think either will hurt as long it is not excessive. My frame was hard to drill for the fence post.

If warranty is still available it could void it.

Thanks. I will get her fabricated and head to the race shop to see if someone can weld it. Usually can get it done with a case of beer and a couple of pizzas.
