    That looks pretty good. Could probably be done for cheap with plain diamond plate and a rattle can.........

    What I meant was plain steel diamond plate is cheaper than polished stainless or aluminium...........

    Looks good man.

    I wish I knew who I borrowed the idea from so I could give credit where credit is due.

    I like the look of the polished diamond plate. I wish I had some when I did mine. I waterjetted mine out of 1/8" brushed aluminum. I plan on polishing them or anodizing them.

    Well mine is free lol.I picked up a bunch of the stuff when a local hvac company was going out of business .They built big refrig. units for industrial stuff and used the diamond plate on the catwalks on top of the units.I think I got enough left to do my rear panels also.Will post pics when done.

    I like the look of that brushed aluminum,I wish this stuff wasnt so hard to cut,its all pretty thick and Im having to cut it with a cut off wheel lol.
