Surely other people have the problem of worn leather on these areas. So i'm asking, is there any way to repair/restore these areas?
Even if it were possible to repair the ware, where would i get the correct paint to match?

Not being a smartass, but have you actually googled Auto Trimmers in your area? There is a STACK in the greater Melbourne area to pick from.

Nah you're right, and yes I have. Infact I pass one everyday. But I was looking for a more DIY approach. Is it possible to do with the correct colours, or should i just leave it to a professional?

Roughly how much would it be to do all that I have mentioned? Just to give me an idea..
