cleaning a caliper
« on: November 13, 2013, 08:21:24 PM »
I am trying to clean what I see as surface rust starting to form on my calipers and want to seal them with some form of oil/sealer.  Before I do that, any ideas on how to clean the surface rust without messing with the finish?

Thanks for any help

You could start with crocus cloth and brake fluid. If it is just light surface rust that should polish it up.
