Looking for hoods for Suntour GPX aero brake levers

I've been looking for hoods for Suntour GPX aero brake levers and my google searches have yielded lots of messages saying these are hard to find. Any suggestions for what would work as a substitute?

You assume everyone knows what a Suntour GPX aero brake lever's hoods look like,

So, good luck with that.

Thin leather over what's left.. ? though some plastics are hard to get Barge shoe repair glue to stick..

I did leather over rubber hoods, sun rot ends in the shade.

I would ask in the C&V forum, if you haven't already. Somebody there has to know whether these are obtainable or not.
