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 41 - 28 Chev Ute Restoration (9th September 2015)

With a bit of work for the Red Chev also

Started working on 2 sets of rear springs, one for the Red Chev, the other for the ute.

They looked pretty good on the outside and I was almost going to just clean them up, re bush and then re-spray.

Refer previous project rule....................... Do it once, do it right


So like everything else so far, springs were pulled apart


It turned out to be the right decision, you can see the rust between the contact areas of the leaves.




Out comes the angle grinder with the wire brush, then a few coats of rustbuster
