they are now made in reproduction but not on a large scale, and seemingly out of stock again. The quality was hit and miss with a fair amount of flash to trim, molded in black. They will need the screw to secure them to the anchor steel as the retainers are incompletely formed.

Here's an ad, not cheap:

They are a 2-piece sleeve, unlike the GM pieces. The extension is plastic welded into the inside of the cover. I ended up having mine retrimmed in leather so possibly could have just used my used GM pieces as unseen.

I'm not sure what everyone else uses. There's several parts like that, aren't readily available but also sell badly in small batches. Problem is, they can also charge what they want because the alternative is often limited.
