I have a (few actually) black headrest.  Let's talk offline (818)-586-2469,
or send me an email...

I was spending $75, I remove seat, they dissamble/restitch/reassemble, I put
back in car.  I found a place around the corner that does the same work for
$60.  This guy sounds like a serious ripoff.  You can also get the panels
replaced (if needed) with vinyl that matches very well.  I was trained as an
auto upholsterer, so I have a bit of knowledge in this area...
