Thanks jetsonrac and XCHASE
The colour coding of almost everything (including hubcaps) was part of the "Formula" pack as was the black around the windows on an SL
Front bar lip is actually an LE one but its meant to have one like an SV88 (slightly smaller and made of rubber), the boot lip is original again same as the SV88 not an LE wing. But the LE side skirts and rear bar lip are not part of it, I do plan on taking them off but need to get a new rear bar and used the LE skirts to cover drill holes from previous skirts my parents had put on years ago

Would anyone be interested in buying any? $50 plus post
I only have the 2 at the moment but I can get more if there is enough interest in it

All the 1980's external mods. Ahh, the memories.
Never seen the white paint outs to that extent but all Formula packs seem to vary depending on what the customer wanted them to paint up when they put the front and rear spoilers on and did the bumpers. The white painted tail light garnish looks surprisingly good. The ones with the reflector there not so much.
Love it.

Yeah the tail lights were painted like that when my parents bought it 2 years old in 1988, so i assumed it was factory opted

Colour coding everything in sight is usually a recipe for disaster, but that white formula looks pretty good

Formula looks Sweet Steve,
Leave the Siren though if it came with the car originally.

I would be keen on a Steering bottle as well. You have any left?

Nice !! Just love NOS stuff.
It's a shame Madeira was gone by then end of 1986. The all red interiors, when in good nick, look brilliant.

I picked up a similar set for my white SL back in 1991, along with a carpet. Really wish now I'd have gotten more but I never knew I'd end up with five of the stupid things way back then.
