I am restoring a 71 superbeetle. I have one seat reupholstered. However, the head rest on the other seat is trashed. I can't find a source to obtain another one. Does anyone have any sources? A used one is a viable option.
I checked around and I think that you're going to have to find that item used. Check the for sale section here and at SuperBeetles.com. There is a guy that is parting out some Beetles there.
I have the seat frame. I just need the headrest padding. It is a special foam piece that I can not find through any VW source. I have been looking for a while.
Did you try a VW dealer? I got a new hood out of one here in Canada. What about an auto upholstery shop?
The head rest is integral. The problem is that the head rest padding was a special foam piece that fits over the top of the frame, and the original horse hair padding for the rest of the seat came up to meet the foam piece.
Thanks. I have reupholstered before. I made some custom seats for a 67 Cougar, redid the seats on a 66 Mustang, and now a 71 Super. I found a decent headrest from a junkyard. I thought about the foam idea however, I had already upholstered the other seat and I did not want to go back and pull it apart for an example to cut the foam.
I ended up finding and receiving the headrest from Bugcity on line. They were very fast, knowledgeable and friendly.
