If you're just doing it for yourself, not commercial production, I think it would qualify as a repair - the way old wood boats are "repaired" by replacing all the wood in them.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
