    • This Video shows the diamond plate being pressure washed.  The reflective shapes hold up fine but it is recommended that you used caution when power washing and stay back a couple of feet.

Note - Overlays are sold by the square foot.  For example, if you needed 10 square feet of red and 10 square feet of lime you would put 10 in the quantity box, select red and hit add to cart.  Then do the same with the lime.

To calculate how many square feet to purchase simply measure the diamond plate areas on your vehicle in square feet.  If you are doing two colors divide that number in half. So if you had a 4 x 8 area that would be 32 square feet.  If you are doing two colors you would purchase 16 square feet of each color.  Click Here to use our diamond plate shape calculator.

Use our custom cut Reflective Overlay Squares to create Chevrons on Diamond Tread Plate.  Diamond plate overlay squares are computer cut for an accurate fit. The unique design helps to facilitate easy alignment. Applies very quickly. You can cover 4 flat spots at one time.  This means you can create chevron stripes in 1/4 the time it would take if you used dots or squares. Also, the squares cover 25% more area than dots or squares. This creates an NFPA 1901 compliant chevron stripe that is 25% brighter than one made with dots or squares.

Available in Red or Fluorescent Lime Yellow prismatic sheeting. This is Reflexite's new V98 film which is conformable and repositionable.  This means you can remove the decal and put it back.  After 24 hours the decal is set and builds adhesion over time.  I have included several pictures of the product.  We leave the removable center diamond in the decal.  When you apply the square it lifts up and stays on the diamond tread.  You can leave it on or pull it off to expose the treads.  If you leave it on remember to be careful when washing the vehicle as that small piece will sit higher than the main part of the decal.

The overlays should fit almost all common diamond plate. It takes 36 overlays or one sheet to cover 1 square foot of diamond tread plate.  Or 18 squares to create one foot of 6" striping.   The little precut overlay squares are priced at $18.00 per square foot of coverage (36 overlays per square foot) Shipping is $8 per order for any quantity.

Since these are custom cut and not returnable we recommend that you let us send you a free sample so you can test the piece.  Just email us at and ask for a diamond plate overlay sample.  


The picture below is intended to show the colors that the overlays are available in.

Select the color you would like using the drop down menu below.  Then input how many square feet of decals you need.  To get both colors just add the first color to your cart and then come back and order the second color.  Overlays are sold by the square foot so if you needed 10 square feet you would enter 10 in the quantity blank. To get two colors you would enter 5 for the one color (add to cart) and then 5 for the other color.

To calculate coverage measure your diamond plate in square feet.  For example, 12" x 12" would be 1 square foot of area.  Each sheet you order gives you 1 square foot of coverage. Enter the number of sheets in the box below and choose the color you want and then hit "add to cart".
