Pick up some cheap Brembo 4 pot calipers for £120. Image

Now I know why I got them so cheap the pistons were seizedImage
After a lot of hard work I managed to free them and removed them all (4 of them were seized so bad I damaged the pistons getting them out).
Image

Image

I cleaned them up and sanded them down. Then gave them a lick of caliper paint I think they turned out not bad but they do need another coat of paint.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Image
Image
Once I get another coat or 2 on I will fit the new seals and pistons.
Then move on to the front ones Brembo 17z should be a lot easier as they are not seized Image

Front Brembo calipers complete refurbished
First I use a wire wheel to get all the old paint and crusty bit. Got it back to the metal as much as I could.
Then I primed them with caliper primer
Then finished them off with caliper paint.
Then replaced the rubbers

Had a hard decision to make on the caliper stickers. R32 or Brembo

Image
Image

Went for Brembo to match the rears

Image

If I had found R32 small enough for the rears they probably would said R32 not Brembo
