Parallel to the procurement of new vehicles, DB decided to dismantle cars that were old but still serviceable and rebuild them according to UIC dimensions. Due to the scarcity of funds, exclusively new acquisitions would have been unaffordable. Refurbishing meant that they could utilize their own workshops. DB set up a design office in the AW (repair shop) Oldenburg, which produced the necessary blueprints. The G10, which existed in large numbers, came into consideration for the conversion of covered wagons; with refurbishing, they could be redesigned with the same capacities as newly built UIC cars. The cars' under frames were disassembled and extended by means of a fitting piece placed in the middle. Support was provided by a newly attached truss. The body was remade with synthetic resin wood panels, but now with only two loading and ventilation flaps on each side. Several cars received experimental short wood panelling instead. The running gear received new axle brackets and double hooks, but used the old springs and plain axle bearings. Recovered locomotive buffers were also used. The braking system, however, was completely new, and now corresponded to the KE-GP type. From 1954 to 1960, several AWs (repair shops) built the total to nearly 14,000 cars - about 3,500 of which included the hand brake stand unit. A projected car with a brakeman's cab was still in the car appointment book, but with the note "will not be built". The car proved itself in operation, and hardly stood out with its uniform appearance; almost all of them were given new, IT-compliant designations after 1966. The cars were used particularly for express and general freight before the advent of special cars, but also for loose-fill loads such as grains or potatoes.
