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 61 - 28 Chev Ute Restoration (31st October 2015)

Progress was a bit slow today, but moving forward all the same.

Preparing front wheel brake backing plates, and steering linkages, before they are painted tomorrow, weather permitting

Luckily I had a good tie rod or two in the spares cupboard

Tie rod ends

Steering box to chassis housing

Had to replace 2 of the 3 knuckles on the steering arms, which involved a lot of drilling, banging, and peening the end over.

The bolts that attach the brake backing plates and the steering arms.
