UCOC Lodekka 651 retrimmed

Not previously reported on this blog is the retrimming of the interior seating on UCOC Lodekka 651. The seats supplied with the vehicle prior to restoration were very badly worn, the foam cushions were life expired and many of the plywood bases were rotten - after suffering water ingress when the bus was vandalised some years ago.

The BusWorks has replaced 80% of the plywood backs & bases, replaced all foam cushions, retrimmed in traditional moquette and replaced the rexine backs. The result certainly recreates the period feel of the 1960s when these Lodekkas were new.
