Bar end shifter refurbish

Hi all
I'm working on my fuji touring bike mostly cosmetic stuff. My bar end shifter were/are pretty beat up but work fine still. I've filed and sanded the worst scratches and gouges out of them and the repainted useing automotive paint. I dont know what to do about the lever themselves. The rubber grip part has long since torn off and the past couple years I've just used electrical tape. Any other suggestions? Shrink tube does not work due to there shape. Has any one tried plastic dip? What about wrapping with string I think it's called twineing? Thank you
