    Hello all! I'm a new guy (newman)to this forum. I hail from La Grange, TX All of my friends call me "dude".I own a 1989 C2500 Silverado. I bought this truck in 1990 when it had 35K miles. It now has 114,000 miles and is still all original. I'm planning on this fall starting an off frame restoration. The body is in really good shape with no rust or dents, but the silver paint is flaking off and the black is fading bad on top of the cab. I did a five year hitch in Northern Michigan, and the salt really played haveck on the chassis. I figured the truck is in good enough shape to make the investment to restore. I will be looking for a few parts (speakers, new bench seat) and possibly do a valve job while I have it down(starting to smoke when I start it). I look forward to chatting with you.
