drill and tap the holes in the frame to re-mount them

factory steps

won't work, the step bolts are in frame. I put them there so i wouldn't lose them, Now i need too put the steps back on the incert turns when i try to back out the bolt. Even if i cut off the bolt heads the incert would turn when drilling.
