So I'm making some diamond plate side panels for the rear of the K5. I got a 4'x8' sheet of alumninum 1/16" thick high polish diamond plate. For those that have done this, do you find this stuff scrachtes very very easily? I thought diamond plate was supposed to be tough? I got one side cut, and during the cutting, I had used milk crates with 2" of very clean soft cloth on the top of them, turned the sheet upside down, made my outlines and cut away with the jigsaw. When I turned it over, the piece has very fine rub marks where it was sitting on the milk crates. As I moved the piece in and out doing final fitting and slight trimming, I got more scratches from where it just slightly hit the roll cage on the way in and out.If I rub it hard with my finger, it scratches. Did I make the wrong choice. The scratches all end up being pretty fine, and only visible uder certain lights and angles, but I'm not so sure I want these now if they are going to look like poop after a few people bang into them with their shoes, or tools or whatever. What are other peoples expierences with these? Should I have gotten steel or something, but then how to coat, because steel rusts? Or is that the way this stuff just wears, and eventually it just looks a little less polished because of all the fine scratches?
