Need Help Fitting Side Step @TransitMania

Postby jonny round boy » Tue Aug 12, 2014 12:54 pm

I've bought a fold-out side step for my van - this one, to be exact - and I need some help fitting it. I think I've figured out where it fits, but it needs bolting into the cill box section, and I don't think I can access the inside to fit nuts, so I think it'll need tapped holes.

I don't have a tap set, and wondered if anyone going to TransitMania would have any with them & be prepared to help me fit it? I'll have some basic woodworking tools with me (drill, drivers, etc.) but I don't have many 'automotive' tools (ratchet sets, spanners, etc.).


At the time I bought it I didn't know I would be going, and could have saved myself the cost (and Tim the hassle!) of posting it. Sorry mate! :oops: Still, it's made an attractive ornament for the living room floor for the past few weeks... :D

Hi mate, myself and Adam will both be at Mania, so will be able to offer advice/assistance.

Adam removed it from the ex RAC van we dismantled, I am sure he will be able to advise at the show.

Other members with ex RAC vans might also have the same step installed.
