Diamond Plate

I'm now working on my trunk. I'm replacing the carpet with Diamond Plate Aluminum. I have a few questions about the aluminum...

1. How easy is it to cut? I will placing a Kicker 15" Sub in the spare tire well. Don't worry, I will be using Dynamat (or something like that) inbetween the metal of the car and the aluminum. I will be screwing the aluminum down.

2. What kind of paint can I use to keep the shinyness of the metal? I seen a segment on West Coast Choppers where he had some painted black and it kept the shinyness.

3. How easy is it to mold around curves? For the side of the trunk, it has curves and such. How hard is it to mold to? What size screws should I use, don't want to push through the quarterpanel...lol.

4. Anything else I should know?
