Question diamond plate in the engine area

While I have the engines out of the boat I was thinking that I may have some diamond plate installed. Has anyone else done this to a 31SS? If so do you have any pictures? All advice appreciated.

Thanks,

ST31

Fairly easy to use, Cleans well, makes a HELUVA lot of noise when you cut & grind it. Use earmuffs. Makes a nice improvement though. I would recommend it. BTW, this is in a 42SS.
