I made mine out of a 2" x 2" piece of hard ash and painted to match the door panel insets. That was 40 years ago and they're still fine today. They're not padded, but I never found these to be large enough nor comfortable enough to rest my elbow on them for more than a few minutes.

I have hot-glued mine numerous times. I only need one but they sell in pairs. wave

Seeing that this thread was resurrected I have to say that Otto's JB Weld suggestion worked well. The stuff is a bit messy to work with but it was easy to file off the excess material. A few minutes with wet and dry sandpaper smoothed it down ready for reinstall.

I also adjusted the door striker plate so it doesn't need to be slammed so hard.

That's great, Gord.

I was too lazy to clean mine up after the JB Weld dried. I figure nobody can see underneath them, anyway. They're still holding strong.
