Anyone else think the stock head rests are angled forward too much? Take a look at the ones in the back seat. I haven't tried it yet but I wonder if you could swap the front and back head rests. I think it would be much more comfortable. Anyway just a thought.

My second thought is I would like to add some custom vinyls to the side of my Red SS and maybe the hood. Anyone have any good suggestions that would match my paint color?

There actually is a reason for having the headrest angled like that. Safety. If you are rear-ended having the headrest angled like that reduces the distance that your head can travel before coming in contact with the headrest which in turn can and does reduce your chances of whiplash and other serious neck injuries. You should be thankful that GM inplemented these safety features, I sure do side-curtain bags included.

Metallic Silver Sounds nice. As for the red stripes on your Black SS, Sounds good but I would add thin white outer lines to give the red more definition.
Something like on a Shelby Cobra.

Safety aside why don't all cars have headrests that uncomfortable. Look at more expensive cars. Some seats in various luxury model cars have very comfortable head rests which almost mold to head/neck. All I am saying is that they could have come up with a more comfortable design or at least offered more than one design to choose from.
