Caliper reseal 120-130 1967


Just a quick question - following an incident with a smoking caliper I decided that a rebuild was on the cards. I've stripped the first caliper and found pitted pistons, a little gunge and some rust on the lip between the o ring seal and the lip of the cylinder. Is it ok to clean this up with something like 1200 grade wet and dry sandpaper (with a thorough clean afterwards) or is there a better way of going about this? Its a single circuit system so I'd like to get it right first time. I haven't split the caliper - just removed the seals and pistons.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions and comments,

1967 131, 1969 131, 1973 Triumph GT6, 1972 Triumph Spitfire 2.5
