shot blasting Caliper

Post by Miles » Thu May 15, 2014 12:41 pm

Hello

Refurbishment of rear brake caliper is required. I have completely stripped and split the caliper and started prep work for painting. The quickest way would be to shot blast but I'm worried it would damage the internals of the caliper

Does anyone have any experience of doing this?

I wouldn't shot blast it grit or sand blasting would be better but seal off the internals.................


Better still paint stripper then........................................

I know a man with an ultrasonic cleaner
