Does the burlap peel away easily? If so, strip it all off and then re-burlap. It a messy but easy process once you get the hang of it.
Just need burlap, tile mastic and some good rubber gloves.
Tricky part is cutting your burlap patterns. And smoothing out the folds.

Replace the steel/iron keep weight with a lead one. Might have to make a couple of wooden molds and melt some lead. Or get some of those narrow 4oz strap weights.

For the heads, you might just need a squirt of 5200 up in the bolt hole on the head before you screw in the new stainless bolts & washers.
