One way to fill the step down edge would be to get some 3/16"x1/2" steel and bend it to shape to fill in the step. The flange above the beltline is about but it is narrower below. You could tack it in place and grind down the extra width at the bottom to line up with the fender edge. If it tacked securely you could either lead in the gaps or use All Metal body filler. The steel will greatly increase the strength of the edge.

Jim,

Thanks for the suggestion. Sounds like a good opportunity to practice my welding.

The skill you guys demonstrate leaves me in awe! I guess the kids would say "Awesome, dudes!"

If you could get them to look up from their phones.
