I'd go with some nice stained wood. I've seen so much diamond plate in my life that it's a thumbs down for me now days lol

get some thin aluminum sheets you can get them from most hardware stores for a decent price. Then get some wood venier from home depot or lowes. Then stain the venier, use a wire wheel on a drill and brush the aluminum. Then using some good adhesive you can attach the wood venier to the aluminum. Brushing the aluminum will allow the adhesive to bond better. I would use a two part epoxy to stick the two together.

Heck you could do this with brass, copper, stainless steel. All would look good depending on what color your interior is.

I would like to find a set of factory silver lariat trim pieces. I guess you couldn't get 'em in '97.
