    hi,
    yes it's possible (diy)
    but the probleme is the coating ( plastic ? rubber?) who exist on this parts (to protect the tube)

    There is a rubber dip for tools that might work and you can get it in colors for that designer look.

    Bead blast, replate and dip several times in plasti-dip.

    Not the best pic but the best I've got.

    I use Plasti-Dip in the can - not the aerosol. Prepare the item for paint, etc. Apply your finish (zinc, paint, powder coat, etc) then, after appropriate drying time, dip the clamp in the Plasti Dip can up to the desired depth. After you pull it out then quickly smooth out any tail or curly Q before it skins over. You only have a few seconds in my experience. Sometimes you can lightly shake or vibrate the item to get the Plasti Dip to smooth out. Then let it dry overnight. It will shrink up and look almost exactly like the OEM rubber coating. You can recoat/re-dip after it has cured but you will want to overlap the second coat beyond the edge of the first coat so plan a head if you have a very specific point where you want the coating to end. I did some frame mounted wiring harness clips and my brake booster hose clamp 20 years ago and the rubber still looks good on all of them.

    I've used heat shrink tubing. Harbor Freight has a kit with sizes ranging from about a 1/4" up to 1" for only a few bucks. You can put 2 or 3 layers on to get a thickness you like.

    Congratulations for your stainless steel parts, but what is the secret to form correctly the round?

    1mm stainless Steel wrapped around a 10 mm round pin.Other shapes formed with flat bars and hammer and benchvise .
    Works on a 60 frame so should be no problem on a 40/55 frame.
