    Looks good Enforcer

    Is it much of a challenge to modify/trim a factory headrest to fit a screen? What do you use for a backing?

    There is no 'backing' as such.

    Basically I have made an MDF surround which, with the leather in between, fits the monitor snuggly.

    The original inner plastic plate had to be trimmed a bit and the way the metal tube fastens onto it also had to be modified slightly, and then it was a matter of cutting out excess foam.

    I do have pictures of the process and will be doing a tutorial at some point.

    There is already a tutorial by Cris who made headrests from scratch, well worth a look

    Ok so I bought a 7" Headrest monitor that takes an RCA input (it was CHEAP!!!!). I also picked up a VGA splitter cable & then thought I'd be smart & get a VGA to RCA/S-Video cable................ I guess I'm not so smart though as the monitor has "No Input Signal". I assume that I need a VGA to RCA signal converter?
