I had mounting plates welded to the outriggers, and the step bolts to the brackets. I want to be able to unbolt it if i need to fix it again.

We got the floor out of our '56 Safari and have had a chance to look at our step. Just as with yours, the slot tore at the rear, then it got a bit distorted due to the break and continued use. We would like to repair/replace ~ any suggestions?
I would love to see your pictures on how you fixed yours...
