Water bottle cage mounting on older steel frame no braze ons

Title says it all. I'd like to mount 2 water bottle cages, also accomodate a pump clamp that bolts between the frame and the cage. Any ideas?

Thank you

The cages I bought (cheap ones from a big box store) came with straps that go around the frame. They work but aren't as nice as braze-ons, and wouldn't work for the pump clamp.

I too, wonder if there is a more permanent soloution?

I've used the clamp on type before and they work better (and don't damage the paint) when I put old inner tube scrap between the clamp and frame.

understand about tire scraps, but what about the pump clamp?

I can't believe that nobody has suggested this before:

These bottle cage clamps are zinc plated instead of stainless, but just $1.15 at Loose screws.
