ibanez ultralite tremolo arm?

Hi guys!! Does anyone know how can i make my EZ trem arm like ibanez ultralite tremolo arm, with the rubber around it? It's something that i can buy or do i have to submerge the arm in some sort of hot liquid rubber?? Any idea?

Its not rubber... its carbon fibre... the bar is a lot lighter than a standard trem arm, so there is no way to can make it close... sorry

If you want the light weight, the only option is make a new bar in composite material.
If you want a rubber-like grip for comfort (like the old Ibanez SureGrip trem arms), there are a few options.
Some people use a heat-shrinking sleeve, others use Plasti-dip.

Thanks for the enlightenment guys The purpose was to make it a little bit more thicker. Plasti-dip seems to work well and itīs easy to do. Thank you!
