Chainstay protector?

Any idea what I can do to protect the chainstay and work around the braze-on when the shifter cable is routed along the chainstay?

I've employed electrical tape. Does the trick, comes in a variety of colors.

Get some 3m carbon sticky and wrap it around your chainstay.

Just answering my own question. I got static cling vinyl at Dick Blick Art Supply. Works real well, err, so far.

I use cloth bar tape, it's rugged.

I just use a Lizard Skins chainstay protector. It works pretty well and doesn't bind the cables.

I promise that stuff will not ever wear. I have it in black, it looks nice and reasonably elegant. And i doubt it will fail in 2 centuries
