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 6 - 28 Chev Ute Restoration (5th May 2015)

A bit more progress today.

Removed the springs and wheels from both front and rear axles

This pile of parts was a recognizable old car, just a week ago.

A new experience  - Pressing out the studs from the disc wheel hubs, never had to do that before with wooden wheels

The rear hubs look pretty stuffed, but luckily amongst the spares that came with the car, are a couple in better condition. Will clean them up and de-rust in the next few days and see what they are like.

Front hubs and drums, have 5 to choose from, that is good.

Still a lot more stripping of parts and sorting out to do.
