1980 Morgan 512 O/I

I just recently purchased a Morgan 512. During the survey, I was made aware the mast step is severly corroded beneath the main mast. As I am the third owner, I have many questions. One, why would Morgan use a carbon or iron based stainless steel step? Two, has anyone replaced the orginal steps with 7075 T6 of 2024 T3? Does anyone know how to get ahold of the original prints? Electrical Schematics? Has anyone here been through a major refit??? Anyone have advise on the engine compartement insulation?
