Very rare seats - reproduce or modify?

  • 1976
  • 911 Carrera 2.7 (Euro)
Interior
South, 

I have been trying for more than 5 yrs. now to locate bolster fabric that is no longer available. I can remake the seat with bolster made in vinyl as the rest of the seat with the exception of the insert (tweed) which I can find. My other choice is use a sub. fabric for the bolster which will make rhe seat look original. This fabric was not very durable and quickly discontinued.

What will make this very rare 911 more attractive and easier to sell, an original looking seat or a modified seat? The interior is going through a restoration to original and the rest of the car is original except for a exterior colour change. The interior presently is black leather and the seat will definetly need recovering no matter what I decide. The exterior colour change is to a more attractive colour that was available for 76.
