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 50 - 28 Chev Ute Restoration (17th October 2015)

Preparing a set of rear springs for painting was the last of the countless hours of rust grinding and wire brushing that has become part of my life for the last 4 months.  A Last!!!

The new few jobs will be painting, the final coat on the chassis, then the springs, then the front axle, and then we start putting the thing back together, clean and painted bit by bit.

Rear springs on the right, and a collection of front springs on the left, still with a surface coating of Rust Buster.

Pretty good metal after 87 years, just a bit of pitting here and there

Front springs, actually 4, which will give me enough to choose from to make a good set.
