great documentation
Did you bake the paint ?
My wife has allowed me to bake/cure the paint on motorcycle calipers in our house oven
It toughens the finish IMO

I powder coated the caliper and bracket. The caliper is RAL 2002 which is a near match to competition orange and the bracket is black fine texture. I have my own PC shop, so it as an easy thing for me. (You should never cure paint or powder in a food oven.)

I'm not sure if you misunderstood something in the process. I only used petroleum jelly to lube the piston seal and dust boot and that was only to aid assembly of the piston. I don't believe the very small amount of petroleum jelly that makes it into the "wet" side of the system will affect braking performance. The guide pins and cup seal were lubricated with proper caliper grease.

Excellent write up and photos. May do this this with the kit I got since Massive is in no hurry to get their rear kit out for us mk1 owners.

Been cleaning the used calipers last day or 2. Don't have a pc shop to media blast them so doing it by hand. Going to to go by O'reilys tomorrow and order the rebuild kits you mentioned and get the piston tool. Then I'll take them apart using your guide to finish the cleaning both chemical and mechanical before I paint.

So I just wanted to post back here with the trouble of getting the rear caliper kit took me 3 weeks all places in TX showed to be zeroed out. I was on the phone with Denver DC of Orielly and had then to a DC transfer to Dallas then to Houston.

This is the DC replenishment rep for all around the country (hes responsible for getting DC's Brake parts) so we need to keep calling him if others are having trouble getting this part his name and phone number are

Richard Hufford
417-520-4606

When I spoke to him he said its NOT being discontinued just slow to get from the manufacturer so stock up on these now I may just order another set to keep as backup, He said he would get back to me but its been a week now and I did get the parts I need so Im good for now. The part number that was hard to get was 41209


This is what you need to do Front and Rears of SVT caliper rebuild

That's weird cuz I ordered my caliper rebuild kits on Thursday and picked them up on Saturday. They're the exact same ones as your pics qweesy.

thanks for the update, its always good to have the direct line if the community depletes the stock. How much did it end up costing you for the whole lot?
