I would buy already loaded headrest and then re-wrap them to the color of your interior! Thats what I did,, then if you sell the car you can put back in the stock headrest.

you can steam the leather, that will make it easier to work with.

i guess the only advice i can give u is when u cut the headrest and start ripping foam out test fit as u go so u can have the fit ur looking for...the material goes tucked between the tv and headrest bracket so i dont see how it will not remain tight and firm unless u remove too much foam/padding or cut the the material slightly larger than needed

also another tip: i usually use spray glue to the material and then press the tv in the bracket for a firm and tight fit and most of the time u can screw the headrest bracket to a plastic or metal support inside the headrest itself to assure a clean install and have no issues

If you can't get a screw in there another trick you can try is using zip strips to the headrest pipes. (if that makes sense)

Wrap a zip strip around the mounting post and then through the TV mounting bracket and pull tight. That will get the screen tightly into the headrest as well. ;)
