Ambient Lighting/ Custom Headrests?

How much do you guys think it would cost to get custom stiching of "Camaro" in the two front headrests? Also do you guys think the orange interior package would still look good if i got the Blue Ambient Lighting to accompany it?

When you get the Inferno Orange Int. Accent package it automaticly make the ambient lighting orange, and only orange. NO COLOR CHANGING> BLUE OR ORANGE.

i moved in early july and it's cause we had to find a new cancer hospital. my dad was at City of Hope in Duarte. which ironically enough he worked at before getting cancer. and so the next "protocal" or treatment plan was here in Houston at MD Anderson. and since the drugs are so expensive and insurance won't cover it, the price of houses was just to much in So. Cal versus here. get it?

1. It prolly will cost a few hundred depending on where and how many stitchings you want from a car specialist.

2. The ambient lighting will only come from the dealer in blue or orange but trust it will be very cheap and easy to get pretty much ANY color you want. Its only LED lights that are blue and orange it would be very easy to get different color ones and install them.

I had it done at a guy who does a lot of furniture upholstery, but he does recover car seats and door panels from time to time. He is a small privately owned business but he does good work and prices are fair, it was his first time doing a head liner that had a design in it and he did a perfect job, i think the bill was $110.00 for new material and labor. my friend got 454 put into his headliner after me and it came out very nice too.very good price i thought. His place is called Darbaryle Upholstering in swift current, sask, canada. Putting SS in a head rest would be pretty cheap to get done there.

And it was not a leather or vinyl headliner, just regular cloth and i removed and installed the headliner myself.

If you want to make it a show car there are lots of forums out there for helpers. Otherwise you probably want to spend your money on add on's instead of the headrests. Only time you really want that is when your gonna present the car at shows etc.
