Is it possible to mod FF7 so that everything is hires?

I'd like to play it again but looking at HD models with regular res backround is irritating.

There are upscaled backgrounds, they look better but not great. To make high resolution backgrounds would require access to the original models in their configuration to render the them again, or someone would have to take the time to remake everything from scratch which isn't going to happen.

This - the backgrounds were rendered to fit within the confines of (several) CDs for a system with a standard resolution of ~320x240 or so. I don't think Square-Enix is going to go back, find their original models and re-render all the original CG anytime soon.
