Does anyone resputter gold diaphrams anymore?

I know Stephen Paul Audio used to sputter their own, and they worked on my U47 years ago. Are they still in business? I know Stephen Paul passed away unfortunately, but someone else wsa keeing it going several years ago.
 
Otherwise, does anyone else resputter? I want to keep EVERYTHING original in this C12, so it would be great to have the diaphram resputtered and not have to have it replaced. Otherwise, do people replace the diaphram while keeping the rest of the capsule original? I don't want to lose any of the character of the sound.
