Notice how it got creepy quiet in here after you said "no party planned"?

Here is today's lesson on why you should not neglect routine maintenance on your vehicle. Regular brake services would have prevented these caliper pins from rusting and seizing in place. This car had essentially no rear brakes as the calipers did not move at all, and the pads were all seized in the brackets. Smooth and shiny is good, rusty is bad.

You aren't just wire brushing and re-installing those are you? Once the plating is gone I consider them scrape metal to be converted into a new refrigerator at a later date. I just did our company Oldsmobile Intrigue. Replaced all calipers, brackets, rotors, pads, 2 brake lines that had rotted threw at the plastic body mounts, the exhaust from the cat back, both tie rods, a control arm and both rear struts. That's $1275 in parts right there. For a 2002 that spends 90% of it's time in a heated garage it sure had lots of under body rust.

Now if we could figure out why the steering feedback is so notchy, the car would be in good shape.

I have a bunch of MF lenses that I love to use but without being able to change the focusing screen on my camera sometimes focusing is a pain. Using live view zoomed in helps a lot but still can be tough, especially trying to hold the camera steady and focus. So I ordered this thing.

There are cheaper ones but they require you to glue something to the camera, and the ones that used the tripod mount typically didn't work with the battery grip.

Something that bad, no. As soon as I found that, I priced out new calipers and my manager sold them. Those calipers were only $130 each. If I have a vehicle that has only one pin seized, the calipers are really expensive, and I can reasonably save them, then I will clean them up. But those were too far gone. I'm surprised that the one pin was actually still good, just took a little cleaning - which I only did for picture purposes.

The mechanic that works next to me, he's a different story. He went on a bit of a rant about how he would have heated them up with a torch, worked them out, cleaned them up, and saved the calipers. That I should have tried all that before selling new ones.

But, doing all that is unproductive. He spends all kinds of time and energy working to get them out and no one is better for it in the end. We don't get paid any more to spend all the time it takes working on them and the customer ends up with inferior parts. My manager and I discussed this last night. He and I both would rather price out new parts and go to the customer about it. If they agree too it, we've just made more money and the customer has a better product in the end. If the customer does not want new parts, then there will be an extra charge for the time spent on rehabbing them - if they can be rehabbed at all. And the customer will be aware of the fact that they are not 100% anymore.
