I'm getting my diamond plate powder coated and wanted to see pics of painted or powder coated plating. I'm not sure if I want a shine or a flat finish. Could you post pictures of what you have, to help me out. Thank You My Mud Family. :cheers:

Yeah, powder coaters can coat it any way you want. I'd go semi-gloss black to make it easy to touch up (Rustoleum S/G black).

See , This is the deal. I found a place in Phoenix, that does prison labor, and good work. They do powder coating, furniture recovering ,auto re-upholstery and the list goes on. They do this so when the inmates are released, they have a skill they can do for work. I think that's really cool. Anyways, I took my diamond plate in to get done I just need to let them know what color after I get the cost. If anyone in the Phoenix area wants to check this out let me know and I will send you the info.

I just got my Diamond Plated Aluminum floorboards for my 2009 Ranger XP. I personally did not want a shiny finish so along with my buddy who made the floorboards we came up with an idea to paint them black. I did not think diamond powders coating would last and I am thrilled with how they turned out. I will try and post pictures once I get them installled.

Powder is rated in % of gloss. I use 20% gloss (cardinal BK08). It is close to what ARB bumpers use. The nice thing about that is it's a near perfect match to Krylon Semi -Gloss spray paint in case you need a quick touch up.
If you get you truck dirty a lot like I do, the lower gloss doesn't show finger prints, grease and dirt as much.
90% is like a mirror finish, almost translucent. Like BSEVENS, I also like the hammertone (BK04 ) and the
semi gloss texture ( BK59 ). If you run by Cardinal they will give you larger swatches on small steel plates. They are just south of the I-10 off 40th St. ...3816 E Superior 85040. They also have catalogs with all the colors on smaller swatches
