Tony:

There is a collector named Dennis Hallworth that has developed a side business at recovering phone foot-pads, and the 302 is one that he does.  Pretty inexpensive, and I hear he does a good job.  I can fish his e-mail and other information out, however I think he said in another forum that he was going to be on vacation for a couple weeks.

As Bill said Dennis Hallworth does a great job.  I have had him re-rivet recovered pads on a couple 500's, recover 302 foot pads and also a 202 base.  I highly recommend him.  I have mentioned him on the forum a few times so a search of his name will reveal his information.  Here is the last link:

I also read a few days ago that he would be away for a few weeks.  I have a box waiting to send to him.
