    I put a peice of electrical tape between the frame and the housing. My frame is red and the logos are black and white so it actually matches. I can't see your images though so I can't comment on how that would look on your bike.

    If you want to cover a large rub area, you can go to an office supply store and get a whole sheet of clear laminate which has sticky tape like stuff on one side. People use it to laminate documents that get handled alot. You could strengthen it by using two layers on top of each other.

    It's a dollar or two and you could do half a dozen bikes with one 8x11 sheet. Just be sure to clean the frame of any oil or grease with Simple Green etc before applying. Good luck.
