What? so that the monitors where in front? lol :) If so thats is a bummer.

So nobody know of or have seen this been done? its abit dearing to cut holes for the monitorframe if there is no room for that in the head rest. Is was easy to do this on the std fabric headrests.

yep weve fitted headrest into vxr recaros about 25 times now. was my mistake on stealths, i masked up the wrong side (was having a bad day lol especially as i own a vxr). Had to retim the headrest in the end to factory spec

i wouldnt advice 7 inch, 6.5" at the most, you need to leave enough cusion either side of the screen to maintain structure of the headrest

So it should work out fine than. i have 7" monitor, hoping that would do fine. Do you have any pictures mate? Would be nice to see where on the headrest you did cut. I cant get stealths pictures up :( If you have some pictures you can post here or mabye email me at [email protected] . That would be ace :thumbs:
