'97 Haro Shredder "Super Deluxe" Restoration

Hey guys. New here and didn't even know their was this many people restoring there old bmxs.
Well here's the story.
I bought this bike off a friend of my brother's back in 1999. I was 15 years old and loved this bike. It was black and chrome and had silver wheels with massive pegs on em. A couple years later I wanted some change and stripped the flat black off and spray painted it red. And then Blue a couple years after that.
Fast forward to 2013. Now messing around with motorcycle parts, wanted to get some of them powder coated black and was told there is a minimum charge and that I should bring more stuff in. I thought perfect as Ive wanted the Haro back to its original color. and that's what started everything.
I didn't take any before pics. I wish I had though!
Fresh from the powder coater Ive slapped on all new brake cables, new Haro tires, New Haro grips and ordered a couple original parts from ebay.
This came in the mail today, and an original Fusion seat post clamp is on the way. I still have the original crank and primo pedals, but I wanted the bike to look new when finished.

Only bad part is the rear rim has a nice crack in it and was told that it can not be fixed. I cant get it welded?

Im trying to find original fusion rims.I might have found an entire bike. Only bad part is its been sitting outside for the past 3 years(in Canada... Not Good!!)
Looking for new stickers But cant find much. Especially for the super Deluxe. Is this like a rare bike or something? Its hard to even find pics of it. I guess Ill settle for just the original head tube sticker if anyone knows where to find it.
So Heres what she looks like currently, Ill post more pics as I go on.

Welcome .....looks good so far. Decals will be tough. Keep your eye out on local cl adds for a mid 90s
Haro for the wheels. I've seen a few completes for good prices.
