A lot of it is whats considered "new old stock (NOS)" Some sources might still have them available. Another thing you can do is plug those OEM part numbers into ebay and see if anything pops up that is NOS as well.

    Unfortunately I think you will struggle to find both good NOS parts and someone/company that will ship them to you overseas.

    Any pictures of your ski?
    I see, thanks for the explanation!

    So Iíll just have to order and see if they arrive? Makes sense about being discontinued but new/old stock.

    I think that's what I would do. Order and hope for the best. If it ends up unavailable they will refund your order. Let us know how it goes!

    Very clean ski! Don't see too many in that shape anymore for sure. I can see now why you want to keep it as close to original as possible.

    Some fine paint specs on the white part of the hull (How do I remove this???)

    And finally - How do I go about polishing the ski and getting it to pop colour as much as possible? Especially the faded front cover?

    For the paint polishing. Try a light cutting polishing compound to try and bring life back to the paint. Possibly the same for the over spray area.

    For that thru hull fitting, I am sure you can find a replacement factory fitting to replace. Or at the very least a better looking aftermarket piece to clean that up.

    For the chips & scratches, I am not that much help there. Im not super familiar with blasters but looks like this is a pre-SMC body so is true fiberglass? What has me thinking this is the way the fuel tank mounts are attached to the hull. Looks similar to the way fiberglass raider hulls were setup. What year is this blaster?

    Ok will try the polishing compound after all the hulle work - Any idea on brand and specifics? Wax?

    Yup - Iím going try and see what parts exactly are needed to get that stock. Letís hope ai cam find them.

    What do you actually call them? Is it a coolant exit spout? From the manual I can see what itís supposwd to look like

    That is a pure fglass hull, pre-SMC (I think from my research) but it has an SMC insert where the engine mounts (Very smooth finish)
    So underneath its pure flgass. Some kind of sandwhiched thing and Iíve read the reagent is baked in??? No sure what that means

    Itís a 1996

    I have no preference on polishing compounds. But 3M and Meguiars make good products from experience.

    Check this out for the fitting and OEM Part number....looks like its called a Pilot, Water (Water Pilot)

    Awesome, thanks bud!

    Will go find out about availability of those parts locally.

    If they have to order I might as well include in all my other orders I would do...
