    The hatch is common between GT and SVO, the only thing different is the upper wing on the SVO. IIRC, the holes for the rear spoiler on a GT are in the same spot as they are on the SVO, you just need 4 extra holes to attach the bi-wing if you use a GT hatch. Oh, and rear defrost was pretty common on SVOs, and not common on GTs.

    Are fenders hard to come by? I could probably save this one as the inner lip is where the rust is and won't show but I'd like to replace maybe

    assuming you mean front fender, the answer is, it's 'slightly specific'

    there are a couple slots cut for the front facia to mount, that aren't on stock mustangs, those are easy to replicate...
    there is also a bend in the molding area that allows the nose to wrap around. it's not in the stock fox fender, and is very hard to replicate.

    I know there are pics around here somewhere....

    Is the sheet metal svo specific? My inner front fender is pretty crusty

    Welcome to SVOCA. Good group of turbo cars you have.
    And at $750, you really got a great deal on that SVO.

I wish I could find a svo hatch with all the holes for the spoilers but I will settle for a hatch and a gt spoiler for now. I need the side spats also hopefully I can get them ordered this weekend. Anyone know where to get that thin side trim?
    Welcome! Man, I’d love to have a T-type/GN and/or TTA in our shop parked next to our SVO. Have a friend with a 87 T-type, and it’s a real joy to drive.

    Post up a query in the Wanted section here. There are a few here with the trim still in their stashes. There are a couple of threads here about suitable modern replacements. The SVO trim had a unique profile, but you can get close with modern stuff. Unless you’re going for a 100-pointer, no one will probably notice.

    Welcome and I have to say you got the 'deal of the century' with that purchase! Let us know what questions you have as you get into it. You certainly have a good collection of cars. A friend of mine owns an 86 T-type, chestnut brown with 60/40 split bench seat and a column shifter.
