Grabber Lime Restoration - Front Suspension
#1
Finally getting some time to start working on putting the Grabber Lime 429 Mach 1 back together.  It's been sitting on the lift for 2 years!!!   Attached and torqued down the tie rods, idler arm, steering gear and drag link.  Next will be the radius arms, sway bar, front spring perches and front springs.

Looks soooo nice. Well done! Can't wait to see a Grabber Lime 429 finished.

Very Very nice!  Is that all original hardware and if not where did you purchase it from?  If it is original great job making it look soooo awesome!

I bought as many NOS pieces I could over time but some of it is aftermarket (outer tie rods) but looks close.   I then refinished them in the colors they came from the factory in.

Is there a list somewhere of all the different colors used by Ford for each part/area of the 71-73's? Rattle cans or air compressor with spray gun?

Yes look at the “429 megasite”. And yes that’s the name of it. It’s an old but very reliable site for 429 & 351 Mustangs.
