I wish the ones on the 95+ years were removable from the panels to replace. on ones like yours, I would think they are nothing more than a hard plastic or fiberglass under side with some really dense foam (like expanding foam) carved to shape and covered with vinyl. would an upholstery shop be able to replicate one for you easier and cheaper than finding new? just thinking outside the box.

Found some that would work on eBay and Amazon, but not in brown:

I sent a message asking if they have them in brown. If not, could I change the color to brown on these?

found this one on Fleybay. still grey but I would be betting they could get the brown ones.

This one on FleaBay in light gray for just $34.50 with free shipping:

I went with these (left and right) because the vehicle check said they fit, whereas the FleaBay ones said they did not fit on the vehicle check, Also, the Amazon units gave precise measurements which I was able to confirm. Also ordered a spray can of light brown leather/vinyl dye or paint.

These things falling apart have been a major annoyance, so it's nice to finally address them.

With the cooler weather, I hope to remove the stamped steel LCAs and replace with the forged LCAs this weekend. This project has been years in the planning. Covid interruptus and IP replacement f'r up us.
