AC 712 Seat

What are others using for an aftermarket seat replacement on the 700/7000 series? Has anyone refurbished the original seat? The bottom of mine is rusty with one hole rusted out and the vinyl is cracked. This appears to be common on these seats.

So far I haven't come across one that is a direct bolt up. I have used adaptors or if the seat deck is already in poor shape (cracked or rusted out), sometimes I would egg the holes with a file to make a seat fit. I liked the look of the common "michigan high back seat" but those seats are no longer made. Northern tool and other stores have chinese replacements that look sort of similar.

Has anyone tried restoring the original seats that have vinyl tears either by themselves with vinyl patch or professionally? There is a local place that does vinyl work that I'm thinking about checking out.
