My latest paint job and diamond plating to boot

Here is a buddys jeep I just got through paniting and my newest diamond plate acessories. I also made a full wrap for the rear, he also bought a set of my half doors. Everyone is telling him its going to be a parking lot rig now. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

That looks exellent. I really like that color blue with the color of the cage. Very well done.

There he goes again... making a shameless plug again! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

So Mike, is the rocker plate also yours? If it is, are you expanding your line?

Re: My latest paint job and diamond plating to boot

Mike, congradulations on that TIG welder.

Now a couple of questions:

1. Can you get "Thin" aluminum diamond plate?
2. Could that plate be make into "Door Skins" to recover hard doors?

Re: My latest paint job and diamond plating to boot

Larry, Are you thinking just covering existing steel doors?
, unless youre talking about say a set of interior door panels. Go check out MY ebay for other products as well. Thanx Mike

Mike, yes, a door skin would replace the outer door skin on Hard Doors. The existing gauge is about 22 ga. steel. It's fairly light and easlily bent, etc.

Diamond plate door panel inserts for the inside would look awesome!

I don't have any pictures, but my fraternity advisor's jeep has diamond plate interior panels. A former owner did it though.
