Yes I made the rods, had to modify the first ones with a U around the end of the rock guard so the clamp could hold them in place.
My clamps were tuff too.
I just had them plated with zincdichromate over 10 years ago.

Check the yellow pages for industrial plating in your area .
Very simple and inexpensive.
