Title: Wanted Pair of Headrests of this type!
Post by: mgovernali on August 04, 2018, 12:18:41 PM
Hey you fellows how are you. Im looking for a set of headrests of the type you see in the picture here. Of the Boeing brown color for my 747-400 cockpit. Any idea where I could get a pair? Thank you so kindly. Marco :idiot:

Never seen any on EBay, even then would be at an inflated price for what it is.
Get some pictures and make them from scratch. Not exactly a challenging design.
IMHO

Thank you guys. I appreciate the suggestions. I did make them myself but they look squarish (or rectangular lol) I wanted them to have the 2 protrusions at the bottom. I though maybe somebody had an extra set sitting around. Thank you so much. Marco

Take the picture to a car upholsterer, they will make those in a matter of minutes, just agree on a price first.  :idiot:

Hello Marco,

I got a headrest from Boeing 747 cockpit seat, unfortunately only one. But i'm sure you can make a replica one from this one.  I myself made one replica from boeing 737-400 seat which is i only have one and need the other one, and now it is looks similar.
It is easy to make this one as long as you have one.

If you need this, i will sell this and email me  flyabsimparts (at) gmail.com

Best regards,
Arif

I have 2 pair of the OEM brown covers, they came with my headrests, but I am replacing them with new grey ones.
I have another order on the way from Ipeco with them in it. 

You will need to get some small trim push clips to hold them on, as the plastic rivets they use at Ipeco can only be bought in lots of 100
