Fuzion will the Tickford GT calipers still be used and will Joe be supplying and fitting the kits? I wouldn't mind a nice set of wings behind my rims!

I thought this might not be possible, seeing that the FOX chassis mustangs are strut, as opposed to wishbone.

Or is that it? A conversion to a strut front end?

The calipers with the tickford logo on it fade badly with time mate.
Im yet to see an fbt with perfect wings on both calipers.
Only person who i know with good ones is dcstraight coz he got his aftermarket new for big dosh!

I'll be a guinea pig (for a discount) 8-)

Good work Joe, looking forward to some good news.

Now must decided save up for horse power or stopping power.

Cool. Nice work guys.

Data_mine, small brakes are bad mmmkay. Get some stopping power so you can stop your car effectively when you get more horses.

yeah, I've already spent up 'big' with slotted discs and performance pads. Makes the stock brakes almost decent.

Incorrect.
They still have Mcpherson Strut, there no way the front spindles would fit a late model Falcon. (maybe an XF at a stretch)
