If I take an L lens, mask the red stripe and paint it silver, does that reduce the chances that I will be mugged?

No, but you lessen the chances of being mugged by staying out of "the PG"

The red ring fell off my 24-105. I'm willing to rent the ring out if anyone is interested in increasing the IQ of their non-L lens.

Are you sure the ring falling off hasn't reduced your lens to a "cheap kit lens"?
