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 49- 28 Chev Ute Restoration (14th October 2015)

The spraying of the final few coats of full gloss black got off to a bad start, 5 minutes in the spray gun broke. Don't know why, have only had it for about 18 years.

Off to the shops and an hour later we are back in action, and all ended well.

Two coats applied to get coverage, could have left it at that, but........... will give it 1 more coat at low pressure to put a good shine to it. Yes I know most of it will never be seen, but I will be happy.
