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 29 - 28 Chev Ute Restoration (26th July 2015)

Can anyone help me out?

Thought I would strip the paint of the steel disc wheels to get them ready for a few weeks in the molasses bath.

Had not paid too much attention to them until now, and only discovered today that I have a mismatch of wheels and rims.

I have only 2 of the correct 3 3/4 inch wide rim and 2 3/4 inch steel disc wheel.

If anyone can help with 2 off 3 3/4 inch rim and 2 off 2 3/4 inch steel disc wheel it would be most appreciated.

In the meantime the 4 wheels are in the molasses tank and will be shortly joined by the rims.

That's about all this weekend, apart from high pressure washing the parts that have been in molasses bath and putting them back for another week.
