Leather wrapped parking brake handle?

Does anyone know where you can get the brake handle wrapped with leather and stitching like the seats? The interior is so nice and yet that cheap looking plastic brake handle is really bugging me. It shouldn't be that hard to get it wrapped and stitched just like the seats. Surely someone out there offers that.

Looking for someone in the Houston, Texas area.

can't wait to see all the things you guys will be putting out.

I noticed you have a CF door insert done... looks shart... were you guys planning on doing some inserts that can be custom painted? (by our guys, not you)

Even though we can do custom painted items this will be on a case by case basis. It is not something we focus on.

Old as heck thread, but I agree with the original poster, the car is so nicely done in the interior until you see that ebrake handle. At the same time it is just an ebrake handle.

If it bothers you that much any decent upholstery shop should be able to wrap it with leather and add the stitching to match. Not a real big nor expensive project.
