i'm interested to hear your results. my experience with picklex and welding has all been on old, hard to clean metal. i haven't been able to notice any real benefit in regards to bite or flow as it was tough welding no matter what. i tend to not use welding helpers, but do use the weld primer for lapped areas. will you do an accelerated aging process, or just do some other kind of destructive test on the coupons?
