Default Caliper rebuild - how?

After a few Scottish winters, the SV's brakes were in serious need of a refurb.... Have taken the calipers apart to clean everything but the rubber bits split so have ordered a kit with replacement seals and rubber bits...

Just wondering if someone could point me in the direction of a wee guide to putting the seals on etc....

TIA.

Sorry to be a pain but would you be able to send me a copy too? As I'm going to rebuild my calipers at some point soon and it would be helpful

There's a guy on youtube who is an ex-mechanic. His youtube name is Moonfleet41 and he has a video called delboy's garage - caliper rebuild. He has a few how to videos on his channel that I found very useful. Perhaps check out his video.

I did a Youtube video on this subject a short while ago, but it was more instructional on swearing than mechanics.

Not sure if it will help you, but you never know.
