Brake upgrade

Unless you are racing it, don't bother.  Overhaul the calipers and master cylinder if you are keen, but if it is stopping in a straight line I wouldn't bother with that either.

New metal pads, new discs and a proper bleeding, and it should stop on a 10 cent piece.

I stripped my calipers, cleaned them up on the wire wheel and rebuilt them. Looked amazing..... well for a few weeks till they started to surface rust.  Moral of story, if you don’t paint them, clear coat them. 

To paint them properly, you need them dismantled fully, otherwise they look crap. The decision is yours
