Once the restoration of 1749 is complete, the coach will have been reseated for 28 persons using luxurious Chapman reclining 2+1 seating. These seats have had to be totally rebuilt and refurbished using units recovered from another vehicle owned by a friend. The backs and bases are currently being re-trimmed, though a prototype has been returned for checking and can be seen here fitted to one of the old grey frames.
Meanwhile, the seat frames themselves have been dismantled, checked, repaired and components altered where necessary. The following photographs show some of the many hundreds of individual parts which make up the frames; these have just been repainted into the green colour which would have originally been used when the coach was new.
