Special caliper cube tool. I just used pliers. It was easy.

Hope you cleaned up all that rust and lubed up the pads real good.

As best I could Paul!

The tool was $18 so I figure eh, what the heck, I'm sure it'll come in handy for lots of "other" people some day!

Now I can keep my dental work intact at least!

Looks good Brian...

I like the job. Why do the rotors look painted though? Please tell me that'* some kind of funny anti-rusting Canadian metal.

our calipers go in nice and easy, some applications are a bitch to get back in and you need some serous leverage to screw them in. thays why they make big expensive sets of tehse things too

I painted them with high heat rust proof Tremclad paint just to keep the hub area from looking like crap in about 6 months. It'* a Canadian thing I guess Bill! Eh?

Obviously the paint on the rotor wears off the minute they are first used, so just the hub area will stay nice and purdie!

Painting the working surface of the brake rotor sounds like a bad idea. Very bad.

I didn't want to say anything, since he is a brother and all.
