Default How To Install Headrest screens

It'* not too bad once you get over the fact that you have to cut your nice seats.
I have 7" Wide Screen Visual Logic screens in my head rest. What you need to do is find the size of the hole you need to cut and leave about a inch to tuck. Most head rest screens come in two pieces, the bucket and the screen. The bucket is what mounts the screen and the screen snaps in the bucket. What I do to mount the bucket is cut a piece of wood 1" smaller than the height and 2" longer than the length of the bucket. Push the wood in the headrest and get it deep in the padding, but not too deep. You don't want screws in the back of your head. There should be screw holes in the bucket, take some small screws and screw the bucket to the wood. Get some air plane glue or CA Glue and glue the extra materal to the bucket. Then run your wire down the back of the seat and snap your screen in. It'* more time comsuming than it sounds, take your time and you'll get a satisfying end. Hook up your dvd player or PS2 or X Box and you'll Be good to go.
Any Questions or Problem'* let me know at [email protected]

nice i did headrests too but i used a wire to loop throught the screw holes and tie them into the headrests. its not that hard just make sure you make all the cuts in the right places when you start cuttin into your headrests. i got some pics of the final product on my cardomain website www.cardomain.com/id/plurr
