any way of re-texturing plastic to look like leather?

want to sand down my plastic panels because of rot. i've heard the leather can be re applied somehow but i don't know how you would do it. i have seen krinkle paint do a similar kind of texture and have done it with spray paint BY ACCIDENT, but not on purpose!

there is a texture spray that is used in automotive stereo... i don't know the name of it i just know of it
hzemall.com if you look at some of there install "construction" pics, you'll see that they used it on the lincoln on the deck install. i'd check a local stereo shop, or maybe selectproducts.com carries it, they are just way overpriced so i don't like to buy stuff from them.
