Could you not drill and tap the brace and fit a P-Bone type cable hanger?

Bit random this, but I want to get a frame sprayed up 'SID blue' to match my HS33's, don't suppose anyone knows if this is a standard colour or how I go about getting it matched up?

Cheers.

I thought it was Ford engine blue, but might be wrong.

The forks I bought back in '98 did come with what looked like a hanger for cantis, but it didn't look like it would fit securely at all to the hole in the brace.
