About the only thing you can do is strip them down and glue a new layer of vinyl onto them. I just did that with a 1970 Cutlass that had the same type of armrest bases. These bases weren't chipping off on the surface, though. Are you sure you can't buy them as N.O.S.? I could have bought the whole set for the Cutlass for $108 from Legendary Auto Interiors. They were plastic reproductions, but I'm sure they would have worked fine.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
