Tips For Fitting The Door Step

Its a bit difficult as they overlap each other. But you can drill out the two (i think) spot welds on the 1/4 panel face that holds the 1/4 to the door step. Then the spot welds on the flange (fold over on the 1/4) up to roughly where the new panel will join. Then you will have to cut through the door step and the 1/4 flange and some of the face of the 1/4 to make sure you have cut through the whole door step. And of course the other spot welds holding the door step on. Remove, replace and then you will have to weld up the small slit in the quarter panel and hopefully have good penetration to weld the door step in that area too.
Hope that makes sense?

Is the step rotten at the back where it meets and goes under the quarter?? if not then cut it short at that section.
What step have you got ?? heritage or Magnum??

The Heritage panel goes part way up the B pillar and of course the full A post. So you do have the option of doing what i said if the step in that area is good, if not then pop the two spot welds, very carefully cut the old step out then trim and cut the new step to fit.
