1986 grey on grey rainbow resto

Hi all, newbie here with a restoration project of a 1986 grey on grey power slot that I have had since new in '86. This is actually a family boat that my sister and brother have had for the last ten years and hasn't being properly winterized or even used at all and is in BAD shape. I'm not completely sure what I'm doing but I do have a motorhead helping me with the engine. Any help with where to get parts or any other input would be great! I will try to figure out how to post pics. Thanks, Scot.

Welcome! Not often someone has their original boat from 86'. The cool part about it you know all the history. No mysteries. Goos luck can't wait to see the progress. Are you hoping to have it on the water this summer?

Skidim.com will be helpful for engine and steering parts. Nice to see another 86.

No mine is not grey. White interior, white deck and hull. I don't see many grey. But, looking forward to seeing yours refurbished.
