Anyone added diamond plate to front of trailer?

We just purchased our first trailer which is a 2011 MicroLite 23LB. I would like to add diamond plate to the front for a rock guard. Not sure how to do it. Has anyone done this?

Some of this is much lighter, easier to put on and no holes drilled in your unit.

A set of these will protect any trailer you pull.

Zinger60...Just FYI. My last TT came with a cheap vinyl type stone guard. It disintegrated in year 4. I looked at diamond plate, but went with LineX. It's a spray on process by pros and is like the Rhino Product. It looks great and the texture and substrate is very resistant to stone hits. You might want to check it out on line.

Yes yes on Line-X!! Comes in different colors too.
Last winter I towed home a brand new Haulmark trailer from the factory in UT. Hit a major snowstorm for 100 miles and the gravel on the roads dinged up both the diamond plate and the smooth V -nose. I had the V-nose Line-X'd and replaced the diamond plate. Cost a few bucks but I didn't want a new trailer all dinged up. I found a custom trailer guy in town ( someone who builds snowmobile trailers) and he replaced the diamond plate just like new.

I think LineX is the best bang for the buckClick image for larger version
