I've got my calipers off (pads out) and am ready to have them powder coated. It sounds like I need to pull some seals out before they are painted??

Can anyone give me advise on how to do final prep (prior to powder coating) of the calipers?? I definitely don't want to have to replace parts prior to re-installing.

Also, I have heard several comments about replacing the caliper bolts. What is the "common practice" if there is one.

Thanks

Anyone out there got any advise on this subject???

My main concerns are how to remove the pistons and what to replace after I remove them? I believe that I can use air pressure to force the pistons out of the caliper. I also think that I should replace the seals.

I have not had this stuff apart before. Is air o.k. to push the pistons out? Should I replace the seals when I re-assemble? Are there any other parts behind the pistons (springs?)

Where can I get the seals and does anyone have part numbers?

Thanks for any help.

Dan
