Default Frame tollerances...to strighten or not to strighten...

I have just finished the disassembly of my wife's, yes my wife, July 1928 Open Cab Pickup chassis.

The frame looks very decent after 90 + years.

Some issues with the rear running board brackets and the front cross member but can be fixed.

So here are the major issues, if in fact they are major issues at all:

All measurements taken in a crossways measurement are all within 1/16th of an inch or each other.

However using a string to see if frame is "flat" yeild about 1/16 gap on the left side and not quite 1/8th of an inch gap on the right side.

Is this detrimental to the alignment of other body components or not exsevive enough to worry.
