They had a special front lip and hard foam rear lip which are are unavailable these days, most replica people use HDT stuff.
Here is the wheel and door trims.

The SV 88 used the Formula pack front lip and rear wing which were both made from some form of rubber.
Colour was Dorward over Jewell Midnight.

Perfect bargain for someone like you or me to give her a resto, I'm still looking for an SV88 brick phone.

Yep, it was the option instead of the double barrel shotgun wired in the boot, or for $600 you could have the SV88 guard dog sleep in the boot but you had to buy dog food.
