As Simon says usually broken or poor condition. Scruffy ones can often look worse than nothing at all there. Ones from aircon cars last better as they are 50% reasonable quality.

I saw a Le Mans a couple of years ago, where the owner had made a replacement out of alloy sheet, then covered it with vinyl leathercloth. It looked really good.

Simon claim they make them but for LHD only. €120 each from memory but postage would be significant.
If we could get a number of people wanting them, it would be possible to make a RHD vacuum forming tool and make them a bit thicker too..but maybe only one version.
Anyone?
