    • Originally in the general OC Transpo thread but moving it over here so that I can make a list of STO LFSs in the new livery without having to use the other thread. 0914 and 1012 were the first two done, followed by 0923. 0916 already got the wrap a few years ago. As previously mentioned in the other thread, all second gen 0501-0910 LFSs are wrapped with the exception of 0511, 0801, and 0905. Contract is for 72 buses to be wrapped, most likely from 0911-0925, 1001-1027, 1101-1107, and 1227-1233. I suspect we will see 0401-0417 wrapped as well considering it adds up to 73 buses and I don't think STO will re-wrap all the 12xx-13xx artics (although could be possible). I really do not think 0201-0209, 0301-0313, or 0314-0328 will be wrapped.
    • Mostly just structural repairs, refurbishment of seats, new paint, etc. I think the main two ways to identify a rebuilt D60LF would be shiny paint and dark blue seats (the fabric is brand new). That's pretty much it. These buses won't be getting LED lighting, passenger alarms, new American Seating Vision seats*, etc. They will stay completely stock. The only upgrade done to the D60LFs since 2008-2009 is the replacement of the Balios signs originally on the D60LFs with the Luminator Horizon signs, same as used on Inveroes and D60LFRs. 6358 was actually the first bus done and this project was done between April-June 2016.   *There was actually a rumour on CPTDB back in 2012 that OC Transpo were going to upgrade the seats in 6351-6403 to those of the new D60LFRs. Someone on that board had said that they looked through a internal document from OC and it stated that the seat project was one of the things they were going to do at the time or sometime in the future. If true, I imagine that OC Transpo probably scrapped the project because of it being a waste of money when the original seats were perfectly fine.  
    • Thanks for the info. Has there been any changes or upgrades done on the rebuilt buses? Or was this series mostly just restored?
    • OC Transpo has been slowly refurbishing their older D60LFs since December 2017 with 6366 and 6381 being the first two. To date, only three have been completed, and two more are currently in the process of rebuild. 6365, 6366, 6381 have all completed rebuild at the moment.  6385 is still undergoing rebuild and has been out of service since December 2018. 6374 entered rebuild in May 2019. EDIT: Might as well post this here for now. Although not a D60LF, 6642 has also been refurbished for some reason.
