Greetings from Los Angeles. Has anyone replaced foam front seat headrest inserts?

Pff, that's not one I've heard of, but I bet someone else here has. I would much rather swap out head rests from a banger. Those aren't rare or expensive, normally, and your vinyl/leather head rest wrap you can swap out and/or keep as well.

Oh that’s right, I could just buy a whole headrest. Thanks!

I bought some generic foam and did it that way, cleaned out all the old material which almost looked like steel wool and cut my own pieces and wrapped them in. Even sewed on new zippers for underneath. Worked not bad.
