Yes, I need a floor jack. Time for a visit to Harbor Freight.

The stock jack works but the effort required is tiring as it has a lot of resistance.

It would have been easier if I had not used a piece of lumber under the jack.

The calipers were quite dirty with brake dust but are beautifully painted with an almost 3D effect. The flash made them look absolutely bizarre due to the depth and gloss.

It was so hot outside in the blistering sun I did not bother to clean the calipers and the rims. Even hotter in the garage hence the outside work.

You take the bad with the good in Califronia, but I'll enjoy the good in January with the top down

Having been Canadian I don't miss the cold at all and would rather sweat in the heat and take a plunge in the lake than have to try and work with gloves in the garage.
