Just for the record, I personally wouldn’t have red calipers on my E30. The red just looked too good on camera not to go with it.

Firstly I inspected the caliper for ware and tare and decided to order a full caliper service kit. I then disassembled it and degreased the main pieces. Once they were dry I placed them in the blasting cabinet and removed 99% of the rust. I then had to go over with a steel wire wheel, on a rotary tool to remove the rest of the deep rust. It was then a matter of masking all of the threaded holes and piston cylinder.

The caliper then needed etching, priming, colour, and lacquer. Once dry I made sure the grooves in the cylinder were free from any rust or paint and began adding the new parts. I started by greasing the first gasket and pushed it in. The outer seal was then added. I then greased the piston and pushed that back in. The two guide pins and their rubbers were silicone greased and pushed in. The two pieces then came together with new bolts. The cleaned bleed nipple was then added, and the red cap to finish the restoration.
