Personally, if it were me, and I was installing this "roll bar/roll cage" with the idea that it's being installed because I might, in fact, NEED it's protection, I would TIG it. If you don't know how to TIG, perhaps your shop teacher does. If not, you're probably going to have to pay somebody or find somebody who's willing to trade out for some TIG work.
When properly welded, nothing is stronger than a TIG weld and is the method used by 95%+ of chassis builders. It is expensive and difficult to master (in terms of learning how to TIG weld), but is a very clean weld and, as I stated, extremely strong. A benefit to it, also, when welding on the interior of a vehicle (such as a welding a roll bar or cage in a street-strip car) is that TIG welding, again when properly done, produces no slag (sparks) to worry about catching interior pieces on fire or melting them. *CLARIFICATION: I'm not advocating anybody TIG weld in the interior of a car without having the surrounding interior parts properly protected from the welding being done*

tig is not the strongest. it is the most precise. a weld is a weld. each process can produce the same strength on standard materials when each is performed properly. slag is that ugly stuff that encapsulates the weld bead on flux core and stick welding.
