Vinyl skin?

These are pics of some metal somethings from my rear armrests on my 68 Firebird. These metal pieces that screw to the rear armrest base are "textured vinyl skinned" according to one of the parts catalogs. These pieces are not being reproduced as far as i know. The "vinyl skin" on my pieces are flaking off cause of rust underneath. Is there a way to get the textured look via painting the metal or is there anything that can be done to get it to look original. I am not that intent on reproducing the original look but if it would be fairly easy I would consider it. Otherwise I am fine with just paint. thanks.

I should add that it sure doesnt seem like its a vinyl skin that is flaking off more like textured paint.....but I dont really know.
