E-Brake leather cover

I have never liked the cheap looking plastic E-brake handle. I ordered this from England and it was pretty easy to install. It helps to loosen the handle mechanism mounting nuts to get the leather glued on. They have the different colored thread stitching too. Now it looks classic like it should.

Like I said above, he has other colors of stitching. Warning, be patient, this is coming from England and it has to pass through customs (2-3 weeks).

I ordered one, but it came rather large, and didn't really fit right. I took it to a shoe shop nearby and he got the leather cut much closer to how it should look. I'll post pics tomorrow.

I've gotten positive remarks on it though, people thought it was stock. So it works really well if it fits.

As I said, I had to have this cut to fit as snugly as this does. It's not as simple as putting on a sock.

I got mine in the mail and it was way too tight. I could only get it on halfway, so I messaged the seller and he is sending me another one, I hope it fits this time. Did you guys just tuck the leather at the bottom or actually tape/glue it down?
