Also on the install for anyone else attempting this:

I feel like it's a great idea to paste a very thin layer of silicone on the back of these plates so that when moisture and dirt floats in, there is a barrier for it. The plates tend to trap this stuff and sit forever, then the rust spot is observed. At best, it ruins the area of paint over time. The aluminum and steel expand and contract differently with heat, and with a little dirt there you have a small example of sandpaper.
