'06 series grips question

I have a 706 I'm getting ready to paint, and I'm wondering if anyone out there has found anything that will approximate the original grip covering on the throttle and shifter levers. These are the levers that have the handle shape made on them and covered with a thin layer of a hard (rubber?) material, instead of a regular flexible rubber grip. Mine are peeling pretty bad, and I don't really want to just use black paint. I was thinking of something like Dupli-color's spray-on bedliner material - it's the right color, durable, and not too slick. Any ideas?

I use a product call Liquid Electical Tape.lLike Kenneth said,it takes a few dippings to get it done good,but it works great.

We use the plastic material for recovering plier handles on the 06's we have restored. Works great, but takes several dippings to look good.

Sounds like a fine idea, I was looking for an idea for what to use on a steering wheel, and I may look into it. I'll probably get a like product that I can brush on, and do a few coats until I build up to a thickness that I like.
