#1 V12 Headrests

Post by Vandykefield » Tue Aug 17, 2010 8:00 am

Good morning all - I am new to the E-type forum but have been an owner for years now. My current E (third - others were stolen - long annoying stories...) is a V12 soft top which does not have headrests on the seats. I have spent ages trying to source the frames for these but cannot seem to make headway. The foams and leather covers are easy enough (Aldridges or similar) but the rest is so far beyond me. Can anyone advise of where to source parts or if a car they know of is being broken?

A bit late, but I know that Mini headrests fit, as ours had them!

Any XJ headrest from the period will fit. Thousands of them in scrap yards.
