Anyone need to get rid of a TT passenger front caliper?

First, let me say that I'm aware we have a wanted section in the classifieds, but I need this asap so I figured I'd post here. I'm not trying to step on anyone's toes...

Somehow today while installing Kandy's BBK I stripped one of the mounting holes on my PS front caliper. Guess I took it off and put it back on test fitting one too many times, I don't know. I was just about to have the kit fully installed too, and now this.

I'd need it quick, as in overnight or Saturday delivery, as I've got class on Monday. I know beggars can't be choosers, but if you've got a red caliper that would be great. If not, I'll deal with it later...PM me with pics/price/info/whatever.

Someone pull through for me!......

You could always try napa. Whenever I need a part, they always have it in the next day.
I'm going to give a shot a rethreading it first....if that doesn't work I'll likely do what you said. I've always heard horror stories about brake calipers from NAPA and elsewhere.
Crisis averted, rethreading it worked. :)

Let me make it clear that this was not a cause of Kandy's BBK, rather I'm sure I goofed it up somehow. Don't want him to get a bad rap on his kits.
From a safety standpoint when I was teaching brakes. First rule of thumb, whatever you do to one side, also do to the other side. Good luck.
racer, I'm not sure I'm following the point you're trying to make. I know that's the general rule, I just don't get why you pointed it out.

A question: since I just opened the lines to the front and didn't touch the rear brakes, does the entire system have to be bled or just the front? I'm thinking the entire system but I thought I'd ask..
couldn't hurt to do the entire system.. Supposed to bleed the entire system how often? like once a year?
Just trying to help. Believe it or not there are people on this forum who know absolutely nothing about safety procedures applying to automobile repairs, especially brakes.

"Go as fast as you want, if your brakes don't stop you, something else will".
