how to paint aluminum diamond plate

Hey guys I am looking to get some diamond plate rockers for my white YJ. I want to paint the aluminum diamond plate black just wandering the best process for this. Maybe some sort of etching primer first? Im going to spray paint it just not sure if it will stick. Any opinions guys? Thanks

start by taking a green scuff pad to them to rough up the surface a good amount then self etching primer then a good builder primer then top coat

Duracoat bedliner in black spraycans sticks very well to diamond plate .
When I was testing bedliners that was one of my tests .
Raptor had better texture yet that's not a rattlecan option .
Powder coating does good .
Nother option is getting oven paint in black . Used to do wheels with it .

I was in Home Depot the other day and they had a primer in a rattle can it was spacifically for Aluminium. That might be a good start.
