1986 Nissan 300ZX

One of my co-workers has had a 1986 Nissan 300 ZX in their garage for the last 15 years. Originally, his son bought the car, but then he bought it off his son when his son couldn't afford it. He drove it for a bit, and just parked it in his garage, with no prepping for long term storage. He heard about the work that I've done with my Sprite and asked if I would be willing to "wake up" the 300ZX from its slumber. It's definitely a tempting project

It's in decent shape with about 80,000 original miles. A couple questions for everyone:

1) Are there any recommended parts suppliers like Victoria British or Moss for the 300ZX. I know LMC has their "Black Dragon", but they only support through the 1983 280ZX

2) I'm sure going to have to replace the hoses, tires, and all fluids....what about gaskets? Anything else I should be wary for in trying to bring the car back to life?
