I don't think they're non subaru.
Godspeed says their piston rebuild kits include 38mm pistons, the only offering available for 2 pot rears.

also FastWRX "verified" via pictures that it was the correct caliper when I told them the seals didn't fit.

And also also, you can see the faded subaru logo on the black calipers in the pictures before I got them powder coated.

I don't think that's worth splitting the block to do a dingleberry hone. I'd run it.

thas the plan. still gotta clean the mating surfaces and do the vitton valves, then I can slap 'er back together.

Is it worth cleaning the piston tops?

best method to clean head gasket sealing surface?
I've heard against using scotchbrite?

using a sanding block and 120grit?

Welp, with sunshine and my other project out of the way I decided to roll the bitch out and get to it.


scuffed and pressure washed





tape all the things pt3?


annd shot my shot. My gun is crap, it got clogged and stuck and dripped a whole bunch on me. The paint job is definitely a 10fter but its done now. Came out much lighter than I anticipated as well.




real progress to resume once this shit is dry.
