    As per title, what can I do with them other than wrap them? Is there a special coating available to restore them back to original pristine condition?

    Look very smart.... And very expensive. Did you have to send them away?
    Cheers.

    The red stitching looks particularly special. My handles are also pretty ruined from the previous owner. A cheaper option would be better for me though just to restore them to their original condition.

    i recon its worth the extra bit just becuase it is too smart, have to get an arm rest first. Hell i got a hell of a list of mods :/

    Plasti dip is quick, easy and cheaper than leather but leather looks ooooo soooo much better.

    The scratches/dents will need to be removed for the dip to look flat and uniformed.
