Front Seat Rebuild 1970 911T where should I go?

Hi everyone,  this is my first post ever!
I have a 1970 911T and the seats have new lakewell  covers that are nearly new and look great. BUT the seats themselves  have not been rebuilt and are very uncomfortable.  The drivers seat in particular goes flat and lumpy very quickly and offers no lateral support.
 
My DIY skills are almost zero so I'm looking for a good recommendation  as to where I should send them to get sorted.
 
Grateful for any suggestions. 
 
 
Tim
 
Ps. The seats are comfort seats with basket weave.

Comfort seats can usually be improved if the springs are not too far gone. The usual method is to thread foam strips through the springs to increase their resistance. The padding over the springs can of course be replaced. New seat bases are available in the USA but are very expensive. However, comfort seats are very flat and do not have a pronounced bolster. Although most good trimmers should be able to deal with your seats you might be advised to go to a specialist that is used to Porsche seats. South Bound only does work on Porsche as does Classic FX. Both are usually very busy so you will need to be patient.

Contact Gary Hall at Classic FX. He has upholstered many, early Porsche seats, mine included.

Where are you in the world? We may be able to help find you a nearby trimmer who could repair the seats, Othewise you will be condemed to only driving short uncomfortable distances in your 911T
