Hi guys

I've recently bought myself a series 1 AU fairmont and was hoping at some stage to get a TS50 bodykit put on. But I hear these can only be done for the series 2 and 3, is this true?

Cheers

Series 1 : Forte & Futura
At the bottom of the series 1 bonnet, the Ford blue oval badge is part of the bonnet. Like this one

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... 23124&rd=1

Series 2 & 3 the Ford blue oval is in the middle of the grille and the piece of bonnet where the badge is on series 1 is flat on series 2 & 3. As on this one

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... 93881&rd=1

Series 1 : Fairmont
Ford blue oval is in the middle of the grille and bonnet is same as Series 2 & 3 forte & futura.

So as Tomek has posted "Fits series 2 & 3 sedan and ALL FAIRMONTS"

Check out this car for sale on ebay. I assumming that this is the kit that you want to put on your car. This is a series 2 forte which will have the same bonnet as your series 1 fairmont.

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... 39870&rd=1

Dude....if you do end up doing this, I'll give you a suggestion, get the chrome strip or lip on your bonnet colour coded like the one on ebay otherwise it will look like this.

http://www.aufalcon.com/Normell.htm

It's up to you as it is your car after all. But I think it looks heaps better colour coded.

Hope this helps

The picture you psted 'big pete' i dont think is a good replica of the TS50 kit.... BTW the grill looks aweful and so does the front bumper, and to me it looks like its a shade lighter to the rest of the car...

Welcome.......the other thing to keep in mind is the fact that the after market TS50 kits which are available are a fibreglass kit. If you want something else to look at...check out
www.c2r.com.au

Did you scroll down and look at the other photos. He hasn't put the driving / fog lights in and that makes it look very plain. I bet you that this kit came from SSV.

Speak to Adam, they are by far cheaper than SSV, and any other bodykit place, and are the beez neez. They know their stuff, and will take care of you, and your parts.

About to say the same thing.
I wanna get the TS50 bar for my ute ... but I need to get the high-series bonnet for it to fit ... and I couldn't be bothered to get another bonnet as the current one is fine.

Damn shame that ... unless they can make a TS50 front bar to fit up to a lower-series front ... than I'd get one.

maybe you could swap bonnets with someone wanting to put an XR/XR50 front on a series 2?

Might be an idea ... but finding such a person ain't going to be easy ... that's for sure.

Isn't your ute a series 2. Which bonnet has it got. Didn't the ute bonnets change from series 1 to series 2 the same as sedans???

Thanks GlennXR6T, wasn't aware of that. I'm a sedan man.

As LG suggested check out www.awcinfo.com or www.c2r.com.au as they have series 1 options
