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

Getting Ready for the big stuff - Rust Conversion Wise that is

It was back on May 16th last year with the 28 Ute restoration just starting that I set up a molasses tank for rust removal.

The initial set up was about 450 litres, which was fine for the small to Medium stuff.

Now we are getting into front guards and other big bits its time to step up the capacity.

Today mixed in another 40 litres of molasses, yucky sticky, hand staining stuff, and increased the tank capacity to around 850 litres, just enough to cover a 28 Chev front guard.

On a 10 degree celsius day, hot water was needed to dissolve the molasses, so like last time a 60 foot hose was connected to the hot water service flush pipe, and a good flushing was had by all.
