You can have recovered by Just Dashes but get ready to bend over, but you get what you pay for. The repos are not that bad just a little bit short creating a slightly larger gap on the sides where the a pillar covers meet. Repairing with vinyl patch will fill the crack put you will always be able to see it as the grain can never be blended well. That is pretty much your options. If it were me, I would go with the reproduction.

You guys are right about cost! Classic has them for $400…Wow! Is the layover cap for these a hard plastic? And how is it attached?
Looks like I’m adding something else to my list!
Thanks!

Is the finish on it have a similar texture to the covered one and is there a cheesy kind of sheen?
Mine would be black which we all know will show any imperfections.
Pics please if you can!
Thanks in advance!!
