    Hey guys, i was just wondering how hard it would be to diamond plate some parts of my burb that are rusting, (similiar to those j*%ps you see, i like the look, and the rust is killing me) its mainly along that thin part underneath the doors and one rear quarter panel. any suggestions? also where do you think i could get diamond plate to do some interior stuff, cover the cargo area and stuff...

    Diamond plate is quite a bit more expensive than is just mild steel. However, if you have the equipment and/or ability to form the curves needed it wouldn't be too tough. It's hard to say without know abilities and tools you have to work with? I haven't seen to large of a quanity of diamond plate parts for the Blazer yet but you may be on to something....

    I think it's Jeff (Muddytazz) who makes some pretty nice looking diamond plate stuff for interior work. His stuff is listed on the Echobit page. He is located in Canby, OR.
