Thanks John, I'll save redoing the rubber tops then, result lol.

I'll be on to big red, no worries there.

Your instructions were spot on. I noted the bit about the nut and bolt, and to be honest, I normally turn the bolt, vs nut anyway, they were just stuck in there as had swollen with rust, especially on the unused threads. 

I did not though that the rear slide pin rubbers are both broken, badly. Thankfully, the grease in there was still present and albeit a bit grungy, they were saved, but I do need to get new ones. Anyone know where or what I'm looking for? Part pics I've found don't show them!

Biggred will have them in stock there range of parts is huge.

Both. They will be able to refurbish your caliper though if you wish, but they will have the slide pin rubber gaiters as well.
