Front Brake Cleaning

After Going through the rear brake master and caliper I figured it would be a good idea to take a look at the front one.  Turns out that it was not near as bad as the rear.  There was some rust and corrosion on the pads and spring tensioners as well as some corrosion on the pistons.  The Oil in the front was actually clean and clear. The level is a bit low but I will wait to add any until I can mount it on the bike. it will be easier to hold and to bleed the system if needed.  The biggest thing that needed done on this one was to clean the pistons up so they move freely as well as the pins that slide with the caliper. Once that was done it was ready to put back together and wait to be mounted to the bike.
