Vintage bus upholstery restoration project

We were asked to carry out full upholstery and restoration of seating on a vintage bus this one is a Daimler CVD6 with a Weymann body, new to Exeter Corporation, or the City of Exeter in 1949. It is fairly rare these days in that it has a Daimler engine. Only six of this type were built as supplied to Exeter and only two remain.

South West Upholstery stripped all seats back to the frames, carried out woodwork repairs and replaced wooden frames where required. We then cut and shaped new foams for all of the seating. Finally new upholstery was cut, sewn and fitted using a forest green faux leather with piping backs.

A challenging job but we love keeping history alive!
