Just bought a new 90hp shroud that is the "inshore" model and has teal decals. Did Yamaha change the colors since 1990 on their engines to a more Charcoal color or is mine just that faded? I need to repaint my engine but not sure if My blue/silver from my 30 is the same color. Anybody know?

Don't think yours is that faded. Yamaha touch up paint I bought from dealer was too blue for my 1994 saltwater series. There are a few similar colours out there but they are not the same. Sort of like trying to match gel coat using the "factory " match kits

Try evinrude blue, the yamaha blue was too dark for my '90, the evinrude is a much closer match.

I've got an 88 Yamaha 40 that has a very sun faded shroud, I was thinking of purchasing a new one for it. Where did you get yours Bigshot? Can you tell me about how much you paid?

Was at a marine surplus store and it was on a shelf. They wanted $100, I gave them $40. At $100 it was a good deal. You are probably better off painting yours and getting new decals if they are real bad. If the decals look good wet, then paint the cover around them and then clearcoat the whole thing, it wil look great. Mine were alligatored.
