Default HeadRests for Rear seats of Palio Stile

Is possible to get Head restes installed for the rear seats? I have Palio Stile 1.6 Sports. My father and brother who are around 6 feet find the absence of rear headrests little inconvenient.

If its possible to get it installed, at what cost and at which place in Hyderabad?


Mods: I tried searching for this topic but could not find relevent topic, so posting here. Can close it if this has been addresses before. Please do give me link to the post.

I ment rear seat headrest. Front seats do have head rests.

I mean the rear seats does not have adjustable head rests.

Question

Have the same requirement, will be taking delivery of a Palio SDX MJD in a couple of days ... besides sourcing an Adventure bench somehow ... looks like there are no other solutions in sight !!!

Can the Guru's confirm if it will be possble to use a Swift waterfall headrest in this case, prefer this over anything else as it tucks away neatly if not needed.

Will be great if someone can elighten us about the engineering behind all this .... Thanks

Unhappy

The "tech" behind Rear Headrests follows;

Interior

Please go to the section that says REAR HEADREST INSTALL some dude actually has done it by himself & trust me it is easier said than done , the bench should have in-built provision to attempt something like this (besides being able to source latches and what not).

From what I can make out @moralfibre's suggestion is the only way to get this done !!
