    seized piston/new BBS

    took my caliper off today as i was having trouble last nite with the car felt like it was bein held up and the brakes wer smoking and my temerature was gettin real hot. turns out one of the pistons has seized due to the small rubber seal inside the caliper(o ring) had melted onto the piston causing it to seize, took piston out and it was covered with molten rubber so a new seal is on order and shall be with me wednesday

    had my new BBS CH today and im gutted i cant put them on but here is some pics to wet your whistle



    pics of the seized piston with rubber melted on it
