Diamond plated foot rest

My foot rest was worn and coming apart at the seams... So... I had a buddy of mine make me a diamond plate cover for it. It is held on with the strongest 2 sided tape I have ever seen. If I want to remove this thing the carpet is coming with it. I was going to use SS screws and counter sink them in but Mike said this would work as good and finish with a cleaner look. He was right..



Worn foot rest







Fresh cut stock







Done







My buddy Mike has EVERY tool you can imagine. 3 car garage wired for welders etc ........ He does fabrication for my Costco and many others. As an employee he has saved me tons of money... Dude is nails. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/004.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt003' />

Thats pretty sweet dude. By any chance was it the 3M auto tape one side has a red plastic to it. I really like that stuff but I have a hard time finding it. how long is that? Does your entire boot/shoe fit over it or is there some over hang?

I don't know if I like the mod or not. But, I'm certain I would like it a lot more if you took it by the Line-X dealer and had it sprayed with black truck bed liner. Just leave it with the Line-X dealer and have them spray it with the next truck in line. Probably wouldn't cost more than $10 for Line-X and that stuff sets up rock hard in seconds.

Yep, red 3m tape. Strong stuff. The plate is 3x5.

I like the garage as well. I know shops with that type of setup that could pay to do something like that but not an individual.

Its a 3 car garage full of toys. Even has a pull down staircase goin up to the rafters. Pics dont do it justice.

I kind of like it but I'm with McGinkle - spray it black. It's a little too shiny and "in your face" for me. I think if it were sprayed a nice flat black it would look very nice...

GARISH would be the apt descriptive adjective. .<img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt013' /> <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/005.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt005' /> <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/005.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt005' /> <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/005.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt005' />

meh, better than looking at a ever expanding tear in the carpet... Kinda like the bed liner paint idea though.
