Can't find seats. HELP!!!

I have a 78 CJ5 Levi Edition. I have it 99% restored and have a tear in my passenger seat. Can anyone help me find a Tan Levi seat?

how bad is the tear, and where at on the seat? is it repairable?

reason being, I used to laugh at the vinyl/leather repair kits ads I saw on TV, until I had occasion to actually use one to repair a missing chunk of vinyl on a 2007 tahoe seat. it came out incrediblely well, was pretty easy, and took a few minutes to do (and about 2-3 hours for the base adhesive to dry)

just a thought, and I'd bet the results would likely be even better on a used seat!

Also an upholstery shop should be able to fix it as well. That's another option. I've had a shop do my truck seat and my 70 duster seat and they are both un-noticeable

The VIN says its a 79 CJ
