Longtime lurker, first time PB marker owner--Tippmann 98C overhaul?

I've lurked here for years, but from the machinist/firearm/webcomic sides of things. Stopped by a yard sale today and found a Tippmann 98C with two barrels, hopper, 12oz tank, and two rotted masks for $45. I'm a sucker for any kind of projectile-shooting device so I decided to indulge my inner polar bear and bring this thing home.
So what's the normal procedure for overhauling an old mechanical marker that's been rotting in a kid's closet for five years? I already have it stripped down and I've cleaned out the corrosion and paint. I assume O-rings all-around are suggested, right? Anything else I should know?
What's the best place to order seal kits from? And do welding or extinguisher shops hydro little PB tanks or do I have to find a PB store?
