Nice brat! Um you do know the caliper pistons screw in right? They don't slide in and out like a regular caliper since the park brake is up front. Learned that the hard way myself.

I tried screwing it in for 20 minutes with no luck so i took off then i hit it twice with sledge and put it back together. Once it was bled i tested it out to make sure it was working right which it was. I test brakes on gravel so i can tell what brakes are grabbing from the skid trails from hard stops.

Glad someone on here got that BRAT.  I saw it on Craigslist, but really don't have anywhere to keep it or work on it otherwise I would have called them the second I saw the ad.  Nice that it has Cruise and AC.  If it had Power Steering it would be awesome.

Wish I hadn't found this thread.  That is what my Brat was supposed to look like.  I bought mine off Craigslist about two winters ago for $50. After renting a tow dolly and gas, I was all in for $120.  I knew it was really rusty but didn't know how bad until I went to pick it up.  1/3rd of the bed was gone including most of the wheel wells.  I decided to part it out and after two years have made over a grand!

Towed her down to DEQ today and passed :) . Planning on going to DMV on monday and getting new plates and tags then to state farm to get insurance swapped back on. Moved the the front snow tires(studs pulled they came that way on the brat) to the rear and put a set of stud less snow tires on the front. Also washed her down and cleaned out the bed since i'm going to start stripping it to prime and bed line maybe tomorrow depending if the bed is dry or not. The radio still needs a adapter plate made which might happen tomorrow also.

 

Test results:

  • Hydrocarbons 55, standard 220
  • Carbon monoxide 0.185, standard 1.0
