It looks nice, but you are going to have one problem, painting it so that the back side of the expanded steel is protected and the diamond plate behind the expanded steel is protected. You are simply not going to be able to spray that and cover all those areas. You WILL have rust stains running down in a very short while. So do some kind of "dipping" or something to get all that stuff coated so it doesn't rust. I don't have any real good ideas though.
