Once again, the appearance of the rear calipers looked as if they just came out of the factory so didn't want using any harsh chemical or
blast medium so had to use old fashioned finger power and gentle chemical with several tools to remove all the rust.

Took extra time than the front ones as the rust penetrated much deeper at the rear side.

Nothing new.
Some of the rear caliper service kit. Extra bits required for the parking brake mechanism.
Again, not showing all the chemicals or the treatments that will be applied later.

Testing the smooth movement of the piston and seal/boot seating.

Not sure whether Honda changed the material/spec of the dust boot or not but on this occasion,
took extra time popping it over the piston during the installation.......
Same tool and procedure but just extra time at both calipers.......
