Thanks for the encouragement. After a couple of glasses of red stuff I'm in a better frame of mind anyway.

I used the good high temp caliper paint. But the aerosol brake cleaner put a few holes in the paint, so I felt compelled to help it along the away.

Based upon what John said, perhaps I could have gotten by with just the seal (they were not leaking) and that's definitely what I'll do with the other side.

So here's the big question - after soaking the caliper in brake cleaner/degreaser/thinner and brushing the snot out of it, do I go ahead and push out the pistons and rebuild - or just put in new seals? I think I can still press the piston and push out fresh fluid.

Thanks gang,

DJP
