When doing the frame rail repairs I made them from 14g. I added extra supports with grooves and holes to drain moisture. I would be jacking on the frame rails like those before me but if some one does latter, I doubt they will hurt the rails.
Nice work. I do a similar repair using 12 gauge on the full bottom following the curve. Usually only needs the area repaired in your picture. I have the entire bottom patterned so we can cut the laser-ed patch off and only do the straight area. This is a good solution.
