Grabber Lime Restoration - Update - Brake/Fuel Lines
#1
Here is the latest update on the Grabber Lime restoration.  Installed pre-bent fuel and brake lines.  Thought it would be easy, but not quite like I expected.  I would say the new lines are pre-bent 90% of the way, and of course the 10% you have to re-bend, you have to uninstall and reinstall more than once to get them correct. 

I also forgot that only the 429CJs have a fuel return line and had to add that in after I installed the fuel line!  Here are some photo's of the lines in the wheel wells and engine compartment.

This is excellent - I am doing the same work to my '71 convertible. Where did you get your suspension refinished?

I did the work myself.  I bought new upper and lower control arms, then refinished them in the correct colors.  All the other suspension is original and I beadblasted it to bare metal, then refinished it in the correct colors.

Super special, Mike. I remember seeing this car sitting outside (in pix, some years ago); sure looks different today. Never seen better. Sure wish my Grabber Blue Mach 1 SCJ was Grabber LIME--My favorite color for the 71 models. Thanks for the update.
