Post DIY:caliper conversion(type1-->type2)

This is a DIY to replace front calipers on type1 coupe to type 2 calipers, on type1 brembos......

tools: metric sockets(14mm,17mm,19mm???)
breaker bar
PB blaster(wd40)
10mm wrench/brake line wrench PLUS: easier with air tools
brake fluid
brake pads
brake cleaner
4hr estimated time??

*loosen lug nuts on front right, place jack and jack up and put stationary jack support under,--place ebrake first, place further weight behind rear tires to be extra safe...., do same to left side.
*take wheels off now
*spray bolts with pb blaster and let sit for 5-10min
*loosen brake line screw and other two bolts(you may need to turn steering to get at them)
* place bucket underneath and remove brake line screw, tie up with some wire to slow fluid drainage
* take out both bolts on caliper and tap caliper with rubber mallet to get off rotor

--do reverse with torgue specs but with type2 calipers

pics included VVVVVV in order

mmm

sorry for so many pics...
lettering got shrunk because of pics being resized
LABELED THE BRAKE SCREW THE BLEEDER SCREW IN ONE PIC....SORRY!!!!!

Hope this helps with brake jobs and dispelling rumors of brake performance...they work great and aren't broken in all the way yet and i still have some air in system..

PS- any further comments or specs would be appreciated as i am being rushed to get to work.

hmm.. I did the twin piston brake caliper swap on my Prelude using the Legend's 28 mm rotors. It was pretty easy. Does the 94 L Coupe (Type2) come with the twins? The wheels sure look like 15's to me.
