this is AFTER de-rusting..
wire wheel and plate them? I've found some company that makes replacement pistons but not sure how I feel about that.
Impreza 4 Pot Stainless Piston and Seal Kit - Godspeed

also, I got my marching orders for the paint booth setup from my friend. he finally had time to come by. gotta hang some painters plastic, sweep the garage, scuff and tape!

I ordered the ss kits, front and rear from Godspeed. There a little expensive, but oh well. There shipping was very quick. The quality looks top notch. Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to run them yet. I did research on them a ton and Godspeed is very well known in the uk for performance brakes and big brake kits.
Don't know if that helps but, there it is. That's my minimal experience.

I'll be working on mine too, or at least working on things that will go in it soon. :) With any luck my own project will be out of stealth mode in a couple weeks (or months).

finally got into the cold-ass garage..

tried to rebuild my calipers. Fronts went together okay..

rears look like i have the wrong sized piston seals. Anyone have this problem before? I emailed the vendor.. waiting to hear back.

Part numbers right. I think those seals go in side the caliper housing. They squish down to fit. It's been a long time since I played with caliper rebuild. But it seems to ring a bell.

they do but they still need to seal tight to the piston or the brake fluid will just leak out.
