    Hi guys,

    do you know you can get a blanking cap for temporarily removing the brake callipers?

    i want to get the callipers high temperature powder coated but I don't want brake fluid all over the wheels when I put them back on whilst they are getting done.

    if you can get them, can you point me in the right direction?

    cheers

    You can get a brake hose clamp that squeezes the flex brake pipe from Halfords.

    Or use a pair of grips with some tape around each jaw, just enough pressure to stop the flow!
