CA&E Car 20 Update

March 13, 2022 9:00 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

CA&E 20 is now equipped with fully rebuilt and recovered rattan seats!

There were about a dozen bottoms that came back from upholstery there were too wide. They fit, but when walking the seat backs over, the side arms of the back rest were rubbing all over the rattan. That would wear the material in no time, so it was decided to have them shortened.

Chief Car Officer Jeff Bennett took the seat bottoms back to Riverside Upholstery, where Rafael was able to carefully open the ends, cut off a smidge of wood, and re-affix the rattan. The seat bottoms were done during the week and Barbara B. was kind enough to pick them up so we had them for the weekend.

Having helped the whole process through, Mike quickly got the seat bottoms in place in the care and confirmed the problem was fixed.
