Billet headrest post covers

have you made any billett headrest post covers? I saw these mentioned on the red site and they tweaked my interest.

I bought your door locks with the bezels, I'm thinking if they look like the bezels that would be good. Inside diameter would be larger and the length would be longer too, I tend to keep my headrests at the same height. Does that make sense?

Are you wanting something to replace the plastic insert?

Re: Billet headrest post covers

I just to cover up the chrome posts. A satin billett to match my door locks is fine, maybe have it flared at the top and bottom.

Re: Billet headrest post covers

I think 1.90" in length and the post seems to be 0.40" in diameter, so the sleeve would have to allow for that size of post. I leave my headrests in the same position. I think the head rest posts have a curve in them, I tried to straighten my posts because the headrest was leaning forward to much.

As for the design, I'm thinking a bevel on both ends similar to the door pin sleeve you sell with your door pins.

Total of 4 sleeves to do the passenger and driver seats.

Sorry,been very busy...I'll try and look into this this week. Do you leave your headrests extended? Other wise they wouldn't show if I'm picturing them correctly
