    That was my advice to my friend with his Pacer.
    He's kinda OCD I guess & was unwilling to accept that, so he kept researching until he found out about the HRL.

    Nope, can't do it-- too large a file to post here.
    Maybe I can email it to somebody more computer savvy than me
    and they can post it somewhere on the site.

    FWIW as OP I was referring to the original factory cabin boarding steps-- not float steps.

    Not sure what "pickle fork" means.
    Are you talking about the early 1953-55 nose bowls with the connecting "ring" between top & bottom nose bowl, right behind the prop hub?

    Per their websites, I believe the McFarlane step is epoxy primed steel, internally oiled.
    And the Atlee Dodge step is powder-coated stainless steel.

    OTOH you would be way ahead if you totalled an valuable airplane with hull coverage after say 10 years of flying.
    10 years at $1200/yr = $12,000 vs $70K hull value payout.

    I've seen airplanes underinsured--
    insurance company totals it out,
    pays the owner, then sells the salvage off to recoup it's payout.
    Better IMHO to insure for replacement value or close anyways.
