1989 Pinarello Restoration

Hi Tom, I came across this thread while searching for Pinarello Montello information. I purchased this Montello frame in Toronto's Bloor Street westend district after writing off my 1985 Treviso. The store is no longer there and I have lost the receipt!!
So unfortunately I am unable to verify whether or not it is a 1985 frame or 1989. This is due to the frame having the Spumoni paint scheme (1984 Olympics Alex Grewal win), but has the 1988 Tour de France decal just above the shifters. I am presently having it restored to original specs paint and would really, really appreciate any advice on items I need to source and purchase to complete this project. On a tight budget.
Below is the original setup. See attached photos.
Montello Pinarello Columbus SLX
Frame size: 52cm
Frame: Columbus SLX - with Campy dropouts
Frame Paint Scheme - Spumoni tricolor paint - Same paint scheme as Alexi Grewal in 1984 Olympics - but has an 1988 Tour de France decals by the shifters.
Frame Head Tube Badge: Pinned Metal Badge - not a decal
Number of Gears: 10
Bottom Bracket: Mavic 53-42
Brakes: Mavic Modolo Pro - I need the rubber hoods for the Brake handles and the white decals on the brake levels have also worn. where might I purchase these?
Rear Cassette: Mavic 10 Speed
Chainset: Mavic - 2 rings 53-42
Forks: Chromed Columbus SLX
Front Derailleur: Mavic
Handlebars: Cycloman Mod. Starling
Pedals: Shimano Clip-ins
Wheelset: Mavic MA40
Tires: Michelin Krylion 700 x 23C
Stem: Pinarello
Shifters: No manufacturer brand markings

Hope you can help. Thanks very much.
