Default Seeking head rest for ASW-20C - or a cheap chiropracter : )

I love my ASW-20C but one thing is missing. A baby soft fuzzy headreast to lean into against those full-rack black-out pull ups, and barf your guts red-out push overs. I need one of those soft lams wool pillows attached to a decent frame to configure the perfect head rest. Does anyone has a lead? Is anyone selling a damaged ASW-20 for parts and has a great headres. Is anyone a lexus parking lot attendant and has access to ..... I won't tell..

Contact Karl Striedieck. He was the Schleicer dealer during the ASW 20 era, and
also routinely removed seat back and head rest from the 20's he owned.

Until you find the perfect headrest roll up a piece of memory foam. Works for me .

I made a headrest once by stitching together two wash cloths and stuffed
the pillow with foam.* Wasn't the greatest looking, but worked great!

Or you could swap that '20 for an LS-6.

The issue with memory foam is it gets very hard at cold temps. But you don't want to use something bouncy that will cause your head to rebound if you crash. I'm using some foam (type unknown) that seems to absorb some energy but isn't so cold sensitive. Memory foam works great for seat cushions because our body heat keeps it warm Not the same for headrests.

Weren't the ASW20C headrests a Mercedes part?

What is the purpose of that headrest anyway? I have flown without headrest for years, but I just purchased an LS8 with a nice soft headrest. I have four flights so far, and other than leaning my head way back to touch the head rest a time or two, I have no idea that it’s been there. Am I missing something? Or is it just to prevent whiplash caused by aggressive winch drivers?

It’s for the brief nap when you have glide on home 75 miles out.

Or to prevent the crap in the baggage compartment from hitting you in the head in turbulence or a rough landing.

Same as in your car:
Headrest is to prevent whiplash injury after forward impact.
