Steps Repaired

Replaced all the rivets in our steps with Grade 8 bolts, flat washers, and lock nuts.....It sure is a surprise when you're climbing the steps into your Silverback 33RL and they fall out from under you....not good on an old 68 year old....looks like the manufacturer could come up with something better that those soft rivets that didn't take much to knock out.
