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 48 - 28 Chev Ute Restoration (11th October 2015)

Change of plan today, as the weather didn't look right for painting the final full gloss black top coat, and having it bloom in the humidity was not on my agenda.

There was still plenty to do, and the day turned out very productive.

I gave the primer surface on the chassis a rub down with some wet and dry, what a strange feeling taking hose and water to something that 48 hours earlier was raw steel, and over the last 2 months any thing that looked like rust had been removed.

Next up was unloading the parts below from the molasses tank and reloading a fresh lot for 2-3 weeks of soaking.

A set of spare wooden spoke wheel fellows for the Red Chev, or? 

Some very nice disc wheels for the ute

A last of all a few rims
