It really depends on where you are at to find out if it's local or not. What I done is I went down to a local welding place here in my home town and tell them that you want the diamond plated aluminum. May cost a little bit more than the steel but it's a hell of a lot easier to use. I put them on my pedals. I had the factory rubber covers but yea that's what I would do just check into your local welding place or industrial rental place if there happens to be one nearby I'd bet they would be more than happy to sell you some. thumbsup

where do you live?? I have a local spot only five miles from home, and they have a cash and carry with some stock that has dented corners and such you can save a TON of money if only the corner is bent. By the way, al. diamond plate is pretty expensive, I think it comes in 4'x8' sheets, and around $100 per sheet(eighth inch thick). Maybe we can go in halfs for a sheet. grin
