Having original seat back upholstery resewed, anyone have it done?

Seeing how flat and inaccurate the reproduction seat covers are I'd like to keep my original seat back upholstery when I get the seat redone. One side is splitting on the edge (thread deteriorated)and the other side needs to be resewed as well but needs a new piece of vinyl spliced in since there's a tear (the side of the seat back, not the front). The vinyl itself is great, no fading or rips anywhere else. The bottom cover was replaced once and that's already ripping again. I'll have to settle for a repro with that part but if I could keep half that'd be fine by me. Could a good upholstery shop do that? I would think so, right?

shawn: I just removed my 69 SS396 original black bench and backs due to a bottom frame failure that I could not repair.I am going to Ebay them soon. I used PDI repo's and I think they are very good for the money and only a little short on the material gauge. but for me a 1971 seat bottom reworked with all good springs is like a new car in 69 (which I did). The old seat cover needs a little repair from the removal and the pass back had a repair done on it years ago. Pics available if your in the market.
