JDsDream Guitar strings work well. They don't stretch and are easier on your fingers.

Kevbz ^^ his idea, something like this...then you can always paint them right, on a bench, and reinstall if you like the look

jefferyfghezzi GOOF OFF or GOO BE GONE. Start at the top seam and keep applying. Let it run behind the aluminum. If it's bad behind you can always put new black anodized back on.

05wranglerx05 K ill get some 220 while im there to get my paint, hope it turns out good for me. And yes i think i might just try the high spots and if it doenst turn out good i can just paint back over it

CoyoteOn2 2000 is TOO FINE if you want to Scuff, also too fine if you want to remove the Paint
on the High Spots of the Diamond Plate for accent. 2000 is more for a polishing effect,
and not serve well for scuffing or removal. For that I'd recommend 220 Grit, plenty fine
and won't gouge.

Me either and you wouldn't know it from what I painted. Everything looks like I paid to have it done. But most of it is the prep work.

Gate53 Pretty much anything above 200. That dang Fusion makes you look like a master painter.
03-10-2012 03:03 PM
05wranglerx05 K great thanks for all the help I think im just gonna go get some paint and do it, hopefully it turns out good. Maybe 2000 grit sandpaper ok???
03-10-2012 02:56 PM
Gate53 90% of a good and lasting paint job is the preparation.

It will work fine ~~~ JUST BE SURE to scuff the aluminum with a scotch
brite pad, steel wool, or fine sand paper prior to Paint. OH, and clean the
surface real good with something like rubbing alcohol.

Frenz after you paint.. get a block of wood and sandpaper just the high points.. becomes very gnarly. you'll get compliments on that.
03-10-2012 02:37 PM
Gate53 Either I used the Fusion on my steel wheels and they turned out great too. Waiting now to see how it lasts. But, you can use any as long as you skuff it up a bit with some sandpaper and have it clean and dry.

Gate53 That Krylon is the best and easiest thing I've ever used in a rattle can. Lots of light coats and it looks great without runs.
03-10-2012 02:29 PM
05wranglerx05 Yeah have thought about painting it black, previous owner put it on and im not crazy about the shiny diamond plate look
03-10-2012 02:23 PM
Gate53 You might try a heat gun but you'd have to be careful. Or you could tape it off give it a few coats of Krylon satin black and call it good.

Need help! Cant get plate off

K need help and some advice before I attempt this. How can I get the diamond plate off below the door here. It is stuck on there good and I assume by using 3m tape which what come on it. How can I ease the process of getting the glue to let loose and get this off easy. Thanks
