Door Step/Post and Flitch Panel

Before cutting out the old door step/post, I offered up the new one and marked the joint lines on the A & B posts:

After a bit of detailed filing to achive a close fit, I tacked in the new door step/post panel. The step is aligned vertically along the top edge of the sill. In the picture, the A-Post Stiffener panel is bolted to the door post to aid alignment of the flitch repair:

If the post/step looks OK, the new Flitch panel can be offered up and trimmed ready to be tacked in:

Once I securely tacked in the new panels, I trial fitted the door and A-Panel before welding everything together permanently. When I was happy that everything fitted OK, I then finished all the plug welding on A-Post Stiffener, along the sill, Flitch to door post before seam welding the Flitch to the inner wing and floor.

Just repeated same procedure on passenger side. I needed to fabricate a few patches but left this 'till later.
