Custom GoPro 50mm Lens Body Protector

I'm in the process of putting together my second generation custom gun cam. I've already got the camera and 50mm lens (link for info and pics)

The lens is great (ridiculous zoom, see vid here if curious) but, as it threads into the plastic attached to the circuit board, I'd like to protect it from hard bumps or impacts.

Here's the camera in it's waterproof case:


On the front is the black lens retention ring. Basically, I'd like to replace that ring with an externally threaded adapter ring. This adapter ring would allow for the attachment of an internally threaded tube that would extend forward and protect the lens body.

I'd also like the threaded tube to go with it and, I'd like the wall to be as thin as possible (no sense of it being stronger than the polycarbonate case it's attached to). The overall length of the tube would be 1.5"

I can provide any measurements necessary (or even send the case for fitment).

Can anyone help me out?

Thanks! I can't wait to get this setup onto the field but not so bad as to put it at risk.
