  • 2005 Volvo S80 Brake rebuild/upgrade

    ​​Just completed brake rebuild/upgrade on my S80. Thought i would share before and after pics.
    rebuilt each caliper, put in new seals. new brake hoses, bleeder screws, rubber boots and hardware.
    cleaning and prep of the old calipers was time consuming, but required if the paint is going to stick.
    primer, paint, vinyl letters, and clear coating the calipers, took some time. allowing proper drying time is critical.
    Full brake fluid flush and refill with DOT4 fluid was done during the process.
    took me 4.5 days to complete this project, but i think they came out nice and the car stops on a dime now.

    Looks great! I like the blue color, much more understated , and in keeping with the general demeanor of the S80, than the usual yellow / red.
