Factory steps...
 
I have removed the factory steps, now the "nut" that is pressed in the frame is spinning freely. I cannot remove the bolt from it. In other words...I removed the steps, put the bolts back in to prevent damage to the threads, and now I cannot remove two of the bolts.

Before I hit it with the grinder and get midievel on it, I just had to ask if anyone had this problem already? I just need a temporary fix before my rocker guards are in. I want my chick to get in and out without flashing the goods. :cool:

Can these "nuts" be replaced? I'm thinking of drilling to the other side of the frame and using longer bolts.

Here are the pics:

The bolt on the left is stuck (nut is spinning)
