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 64 - 28 Chev Ute Restoration (7th November 2015)

Today was all about steering and brakes, sorting out what parts I have, what are good and what need to be sent out for machining or relining.

Stripped 2 steering boxes, should be able to make 1 good one from the 2 with a bit of machining

 Front brake shoes, rear brake bands inner and outer will be sent away for relining

The front brake actuators are not too bad but will need the original die cast blocks that hold in he brass adjustment nut replaced.

 The four chassis mounted brake rod hangers are in very good condition. This is a set I purchased from the States back in 2009. Never under estimate the importance of spare parts.
