Dart 163's repaint takes shape

Ex-Stagecoach Dennis Dart V163MVX is another of our low floor fleet that has been off the road since September of last year, after a troublesome first year since acquisition. Following rewiring work, 163 is now being repainted into the new livery. The amount of orange is reduced compared to Dart 143, accounted for by the shorter length and to avoid the advert frames. We will see what the increased turquoise looks like on the front when complete - this is more akin to the true Cardiff Bus layout - 163 will be a guinea pig for other Plaxton bodied Darts.
