AIR RIDE set to move to new larger installation and manufacturing facility shortly



We have recently spent much time and money addressing some of the shortcomings of the traditional Fortek kit. By reducing the width of the bodykit by some 3/4" it allows the use of 7 x 13 wheels, and 175/50/13, although disc front brakes, and rear spacer drums are required.

The kit has been fundamentally re-designed so that the front arches, sideskirts and rear arches are in one piece. This cuts down around half of the fitting work that would otherwise be required. The other fundamental change involves the use of a return on the rear of the arches to provide a positive fixing point. The kit still required blended fixing, but the returns and new design means that fitting is very straightforward.

The basic purity of the design has been retained by some artistic license has been sought. The most obvious change revolves around the front and rear bumpers, which are totally different from the original. They are very rounded, are as wide as the arches (unlike the original), and the front is secured under the grill. There are no ducts or vents in order to carry through the smooth, curvy, lines of the arches, although the customer could easily cut these out if required. The skirts are heavily modified Escort Cosworth items shortened in length.

We anticipate that this new kit (available early October 1999), will supersede the original Fortek kit due primarily to its ease of fit. Our fitters whom have to fit kits every day, to go on the car quickly and firmly have designed it from the outset. We are the only manufacturers for the Minicos bodykit.
