Cool ss detailing

Hey everyone...........Have a 2006 Monte Carlo SS and would like to add the SS badges to the headrests.
Any suggestions on the best way to do this ? Would appreciate any help !

I was going to send mine out to be stitched but it turns out it was cheaper to order the SS headrests from the dealer and swap them out! Direct fit, no hassles and looks great!

Keep an eye on here or Ebay for a set. They haev to come from an 06 or newer Impala. Monte had no SS headrests. I got mine cheap on ebay. There was just a set of Tony Stewarts on here. Keep an eye n classifieds. Alot of shops will not do them sinice it is licensed by GM. I think they say partsdirect.com has them cheapest. The part numbers are listed somewhere on here for them. Start searching the forum with the search box. GL.

the only thing good about having them stitched is you can have different colors and stuff. i plan on getting mine done sometime cus the impala white SS headrests dont really go with the theme of my car

I had mine done the stitching was only 12 dollars a headrest and you can pull the skin and put it back on. Here is the pic

Who did yours Mel, Can we all send ours to you? I would like to get my original set done. The white just doesn't show much on my gray.

does anyone know if the leather from the seats come off this easy? I was gonna give it a shot when i put my led's under the seats and had to take the seats/mounts out of the car, but didn't wanna face the consequences of taking the leather off and not being able to get it back on...
