I wouldn't put anything other than a single piece of something over them, and epoxy it down. The constant heating ang cooling will shrink it, and it will eventually fall off.

Have you checked out the polished metal stick ons from signs by Drex? They are a little on the pricey side for what they are, but they do look nice.
