We had an accident a few months back and still trying to get our spark back to 100(ish)%. We patched hull, pumped water, 6+ oil flushes, spark plugs etc. now putting it back together I can’t get to the two bolts in rear behind seat (attaches top to bottom) to go in. Also having issues with drive line. It’s all connected but does hard rights and soft lefts. What am I missing? Please help!!!

Been there...done that.....2017 Spark 2 went nose up last year. I have her all back together (new hull) BUT she is leaking from somewhere under the hull, was squatting low in the water overnight this past weekend....pulled her out in the morning, she's on dry land for the moment but runs great.....I obviously missed something with sealant or enough sealant...will be taking the top side OFF again.

I can't get my steering adjusted properly either....same thing hard rights and soft lefts...I tried to find a reasonable compromise between lefts, rights and centers but I'm not there yet either...I'll fiddle withe steering once the top deck is off.

What 2 bolts can't you get in behind the seat? Picture would help.

Hard to say for sure but did you get that Y shaped support located properly inside the ski? It kinda looks like your screws need to mate into the top of the Y piece inside the hull.
I used an anaroebic sealent I had lying around from a previous engine rebuild- Yamaha something. I also lots of black RTV sealant too.

OK, I have a better view of your picture on my laptop....the screw holes you are referencing mate with the Y support inside the ski.....the top deck holes line up with the top of the Y, the Y support leg should be held in place by the rear deck cover and a nub in the hull so it doesn't flop around...I assume you also put the rear strofoam float piece back up under the rear deck? as the Y support kinda rests against it as well....once I put the top deck on, i used an awl to get the pieces lined up and installed the screws.
