Bought some cheap 2nd hand leather door grabs from eBay. because they were going cheap. They were a bit scruffy and in the wrong colour so I got some black dye (to match the gearstick and emergency brake). Bit of a problem finding a good black dye but found that professionals use Fiebings oil dye so I grabbed some of that from eBay and had a bash. Happy with the result, quite a transformation, they look like brand new, just need some matt conditioner to pull off the sheen then I think these are good.

I couldn't find any anywhere, this was my last resort as I didn't fancy covering the old ones with leather covers. they look a bit loose & baggy in places. But these have held up well. I was going to replace them but decided to leave them as they are doing so well so far.
