Managed to hack fuel pump circuitry, drain tank and all accessories

I also have to compete manual adjust seat frames in case anyone needs mechanical parts of seats

Ill evaluate and let you know, Chuck.

Has anyone managed to source new pistons or seals for these?

Thanks.

I have seal kits (Purchased from FCP), but the pistons are less than ideal.

Is the d* pistons that you need to recover these things, and I don't think they are available.

No go on the front brake calipers - need rebuilding. I am going to get parts from UK and attempt this for practice.

Smacknab - Front suspension isnt good. If you want a stop gap Ill haul off and giveaway if I deem is serviceable, but I won't take cash for it.
