The purpose of this Blog

This blog is to detail my 43 years (1973 - 2016) with a 1928 Chevrolet tourer, affectionately called "The Red Chev".

The acquisition, restoration, improvements and my experiences over the years are covered in as much detail as I can remember.

Some of the later postings include car club outings and other vintage car items that I hope will be of interest to people.

If you have the time, scroll back to where it all began in 1973 and follow the journey so far.

Thanks for dropping by.

Regards Ray Dean

Day 12 - 28 Chev Ute Restoration (31st May 2015)

Another day of good progress.

Firstly I stripped and cleaned up the end plates of  the 3 sets of brake cross bars, I for the ute, 1 for the Red Chev and one for the spares cupboard.

They are ready for the molasses bath.

Next in line for the molasses bath (once set up) will be

5 x front brake drums
2 x rear brake drums
2 x front brake backing plates
2 x rear hubs
