Be VERY careful with the guide pin boot on the UFO caliper.  They are  
not available from anywhere.  They can be pried off if you are  
extremely careful- but have some superglue or similar ready to repair

Not up here in the northeast with road salt and such.  Here they tend  
to rust, build pad material on the inside+outside edge, which then  
glazes over.

That's a great way to get the surprise of your life when a chunk of  
the pad breaks off the backing plate and your foot sinks to the floor.
