1989 Haro Team Master Bashguard

1989 Haro Master - Chrome

This was my dream bike back in the day.  Bought her new in 89 and looking forward to finally restoring her this spring / summer.  It's been sitting in my garage for years and shows some surface rust, but hoping to be able to polish it back to a nice shine.  The frame has no dents, but the bash guard does have some scrapes and gouges.  Decals are a little faded and torn in places.  From what I can see and remember, the parts that are currently non-original are the grips, rear brake, brake cables, tires, and chain ring... possibly the brake leavers.  The leavers that are on it now are Odyssey RX•3's... original?  This isn't a Team Master and I'm not sure what the part differences were other than the cranks and chain ring...  It's got ACS hubs and i believe rims.  Somewhere in my dad's garage I have a box with the original uni-directional chainring and rear Odyssey Pitbull brakes.  I remember that I kept bending the uni-directional chain ring when trying to grind things.  At one point I went down to a 32 or 36 tooth sprocket to keep from bending it. 

So what do you guys think, should I take the decals off and start from scratch or try to salvage them and turn it into a survivor?
