Which cars go thru Tickford Factory?

Just a small question. Which cars out of the total Ford Aust range actually PHYSICALLY enter the Tickford plant? Obviously the T Series and XR's and Mustang , but how about Falcon Fortes or Fairmonts or ANY other model for things like sunroofs, wheels, Momo wheels, suspension options etc. eg the Ghia is vct so is 'Tickford blessed' in that its the XR motor, but does it go anywhere near the Tickford plant or stay entirely in the Ford factory for fitment and finishing?

Tickford used to do the LPG for Ford I think, I am not sure if they still do.

Currently all XRs go thru Tickford, any sunroof, suspension mods, dual fuel LPG, LTDs, special tyres, Tseries, Mustangs, any Momo options etc.

Dual Fuel LPG still goes through the factory, dedicated (SF) LPG does not go through the Tickford factory.

Other than that al XRs/T-Series go through the Tickford factory, and other models that have Tickford fitted accessories.

Yes, but what exactly are the accessories. Like is a Momo wheel fitted solely in the Tickford factory or in the Ford factory. Can anyone that has seen the cars list ALL cars that actually do go thru there (not think they do, could do, might do, etc, but ACTUALLY do). Interesting about MX5's. Anyone confirm and detail such lil rats in the nest?

MOMO wheels are fitted at the Ford Factory. I know that for a fact because they fit all the cars to be fitted with MOMO wheels with temporary steering wheels. I saw them when I did work experience.

You can find out what things are fitted at the Tickford factory in the specifications brochures. Everything option that has a pair of Tickford wings next to it is fitted at the Tickford Factory.

Mazda MX5 - Tickford did the 100 or so Turbo conversions for Mazda for the recently sold out small turbo run...

All factory sun roof conversions done by Tickford.

All XR8 & T-series motors (AU2 / AU3) rebuilt to varying levels by Tickford.

All body kits & XR nose cones fitted by Tickford.

All brake conversions (both Premium & Brembo) done by Tickford.

All dual fuel conversions (factory) handled by Tickford - correct me if I'm wrong but I believe all Dedicated Gas is now done on the Broadmeadows assy line.

There are heaps more (as well as the obvious such as T-series, Mustang conversions etc) but I don't have time to run through them now...

Temporary steering wheels are fitted on production line at BM, XR's then go to Tickford to have these wheels replaced with the MOMO wheel
XR suspension is now fitted during production at BM
XR and T engines are built at Tickford, shipped to BM to be fitted on production line.
