That integrated step is not a part of my conventional gear quick build SP100 circa 2007.
The PAC didn’t even mention it and it never crossed my mind to ask.

Pulsar Kit 911 was sold as a fast build kit with fuselage halves joined, empennage and wings completed. The fuselage steps are not documented in the original construction manual which was transferred to me from the fourth buyer of kit 911. The steps are probably 4130 tubular material. The Nomex fuselage bulkhead for step attachment appears to be solid material as noted when tapping on it with a metal bolt (not hollow).
There is also multiple layers of glass cloth applied to bulkhead under each leg mounting bracket secured with .25 inch dia.
