The advice was already given one of the fb groups to just get a new caliper from rock auto...and the calipers are dirt cheap, but now he wants to know if he can fit a dsm front caliper on it. Well okay.

I'm the owner of this now, got it for $600 off the guy. Currently rebuilding the front end suspension. Literally every piece of rubber on the car was exploded lol. Not as clean as it was listed.

Nice find!! I have a '76 sedan w/ white interior. Hows the rust looking in yours? My trunk is pretty bad.

Looks like a bunch of surface rust, have yet to pull up the carpet. But the trunk looks great!

So far, having torn apart the front end suspension, I've yet to run into any terribly rusty bolts.

600 seems like a good buy. What are you doing for struts?

I have tried to replace the strut mounts, but the ones I bought were wrong? Possibly made for a Dodge challenger and not a colt? If anyone knows where to find the correct ones, it would be greatly appreciated.
Probably going to rebuild the original struts. They aren't leaking, but I believe the o-ring seal inside the strut is blown out. Unless there is an easier replacement than fabricating a mount for MR2 struts lol.
