FR caliper and bracket. So much rust….

The rust even managed to pass the dust boot seating area and into the piston seal edge.

As expected, even worse condition at the FL side.

Brake pad was not making good contact against the disc even at the inner side.

Both dust boots are sitting in a very strange way….

Lost my words….

Just briefly cleaned one of the piston and decided not going to bother any further.
So much damages were done to all four of them.....

Looked like someone replaced the FR side pistons in the past but already rusted and can't re-use them.

All four pistons to be replaced.

Since I'm not going to touch the rear calipers/brackets, not much point sending just the front side to Bigg Red.

However, considering the state of the front side, please consider sending all four caliper and bracket to them for chemical treatment and premier coating
when overhauling the brake system next time.

The OEM brake hose fitting is also very rusty so please replace them with Goodridge custom made NSXCB spec at the same time.

Not much point in spending hours for treating the calipers against the future rust but without at least removing them,
can't even start the re-assembly process so in the middle of using all sorts of tools/chemicals dealing with these heavily rusted parts….
