I guess since you painted it already you can leave it the way it is, it does look good And don't paint the diamond plate, it peals pretty easy.
ye'all need to invest into one or two of these there only like 2 bucks at home depo or hobo freight and thell save all your and work for all spray cans..

Good work Perry. I'd stick with black tubes and leave the diamond plate alone.

Right on Perry. I like it even better than before.

I'm with the rest. Black tubes and raw aluminum diamond plate.

I have two of those, they don't work really well for me. Paint collects in the collar and drips all over. if I use the spray cans with a pattern adjuster they work even worse. I even tried cutting part of the open area bigger with no luck so numb fingers it is

Perry, this looks great. Good color choice.

I vote for raw, unpainted diamond plate. If you're going to paint the roll bars a different color, there are lots of choices that would look good with sand. You could do a dark navy blue -- that would be pretty nice, and would take you out of the baby poop territory.

Sorry Wes, but Navy Blue sounds a little better. Will start loking at colors and finish painting once I get it back from Homegrown. And i'll leave the Diamond plate unpainted (though I will have to clean it up a bit)

Again, thanks all for the compliments

Dude...That looks Sweeeeet!!!

I would go traditional and go black on the bars and match your wheels with a fresh coat too..

Your RTT color is going to contrast great with that color..

Sand is a great color...Marco and I swear buy it!!
