      Good work.

      I used a 'little' compressed air into the pigtail brake line to force out my pistons when I did them, granted they were from an operational set of calipers.

      If I recall, there were two types of piston materials available, at least for the TR6. If the same were available for the GT6 what was your thought process for the ones you used?

      I see mild vs Stainless Steel in Moss, which would be obvious, but I thought I saw another material somewhere. Have to look.......

      Edit: Stainless vs Nitrided (vs chrome?)

        Ed - I feel like I am watching one of those car shows on MotorTrend TV......start a project and in 30 minutes to and hour it is completed :-). I really appreciate the patience and attention to detail that you demonstrate during these builds. Keep up the great work.

          Front suspension easy...rear not so much. Does like great tho!

          May I suggest scrapping the rotoflex couplers & buy the CV axles from Rimmer. Still have to disassemble everything

          I’m still working on my son’s. Every time I turn around I hit roadblocks
          So much rust, so little time

            I did see some nitrided pistons. The seller claimed most of the durability of stainless at a lower price. Might have been a good option.

            More like 30 months, I'm afraid.

            I'll have a look at them, but I'd have to see a pretty big benefit to stray that far from stock.

              Mostly the quality or lack there of the rotoflex couplers and hassle of replacing them. Not to mention the CV axles aren’t that much
