How to clean Diamond Plate

Looking to clean my diamond Plate on a popup. Any thoughts on good and more importantly easy stuff I can start with?

You might try any of the several products made to clean motorcycles. I'm thinking of those that come in pump spray bottles. They help dissolve the bugs before a light washing. Bike Brite is the brand I have in my garage, though I've not tried it on my diamond plate yet. Warm soapy water has done it for me so far, but I don't tend to collect bugs on it because of the design of my tow vehicle.

Since the Diamond Plate is just a hard plastic, I clean mine with just warm soapy water, just as hamguy does. I use Dawn dish soap, good cleaner.

I believe the diamond plate on the front of the AFrames is aluminum. Soap and water should do the trick. A chrome or aluminum polish should help with those tough spots. As always test in an inconspicuous area.
