I've not done this yet, but:

I'd cut the top cap off leaving as much material as possible. You can
then remove the existing insert.
Clean it out, and insert the new shock. With your new weld-on bits
to hand, you'll be able to measure exactly where to trim the pipe so that
you achieve the correct position.
You'll want to have the screw-down part mostly in the collar, but of course without
going in too far. [I haven't seen the kit, so i'm not familiar with how the two parts fit together]

I'm sure someone will amend this if necessary.

I'll be watching your progress, please keep us updated!

Regards, Nigel
