John E Davies Posted June 12, 2017 Share Posted June 12, 2017 The lower step traps water when in the stowed position. When extended, that is not an issue. Both sections need a way for trapped water to drain away. Standing water is bad - it and dirt combine to form a crud that promotes corrosion, plus it just looks bad. And you don't want to dump that water onto your sneakers, correct? Drill a hole at each lower corner of each section (lower corner, when stowed!). That way water will drain regardless of the angle the Ollie is sitting. Clean up any burrs on the part that shows when the steps are down, using a countersink or larger bit. That was easy..... this is a very simple mod that anybody can do in a few minutes, and feel better afterwards.
