Leather door card cover

I saw these on ebay, $175. Costs less than buying new door cards. Anyone have any experience with these or seen a set in person? Other than the awful seam, they don't look too terrible. Leather door card cover, like a seat cover.

after you glue them to your original door card , good luck removing them.... i wouldnt do it unless your currently door card is already in really bad shape.

mine were crap to begin with, spray painted them black, now they are sticky/tacky when it's hot. Which is all the time in San Diego lately.

Curious if you ever got these. Also were you able to get LHD versions? Pics show RHD.

Is there a way to paint that doesn't result in stickiness like mentioned above? I didn't think a vinyl die would get sticky (I'm assuming that person didn't just use spray paint).

mine were sticky for a minute, then i clear coated them and let them sit for a week. Now they are as dry as can be. Had another FD owner come over and couldn't even tell they had been painted.
however, when summer hits, they may get tacky with the heat. We shall see.
