Mine were really faded and banged up as well. I tried to "restore" them- with no luck. Maybe someone here has successfully done so.
I bought a pair from Larry's back in 2005. They fit great and seem to be of good quality (I think they were made in Taiwan?). I remember thinking that I didn't realize just how bad the old ones looked until I replaced them. However, after 7 years of very little use they are showing some dings and scratches. IMO they are not as high in quality as the originals- and they are expensive.
BTW, I was just looking over my invoice from '05 and noticed that I paid $139.95 for the pair. In my latest Larry's catalog they are selling for $78.95 each. Concours Parts offers them a little cheaper. I imagine they both buy from the same overseas manufacturer.
