How to refurbish the 'Turbo' script on the rear seat

The Turbo script on my rear seat has mostly faded. The stitching on the edges ist still visible leaving the contour of the letters but most of the stiching is gone. I now want to have this redone on the original carpet.

Has anyone experience with this or know a craftsman that has experience doing it?

I removed the carpet and a quick test shows it can be stitched by hand... Could someone help me with a closeup of how the original stitching looked like, i.e. what pattern was used as well as density and size of the stitching? I have one picture from an Ebay ad but would like to see more before attempting the refurbishment....

Alternatively, does someone have an original black carpet with the stiching for sale?
