I'm no expert in upholstery, but it seems like a dedicated worker could take off the old piece, fill in the broken parts with suitable foam, and recover the whole unit with black vinyl purchased from the fabric store.  It would take some skill to get it all around the edges.  I'm just suggesting a modification on Mark's original idea: instead of starting over with a new bunch of plywood, use the original crash roll as a basis.  That's the best idea I've been able to come up with.  Fortunately, mine has been protected by the hardtop for most of its life, but it, too, is starting to come apart at the edges.
