The Florida is in for MOT and my mechanic says I need at least one new caliper and ideally both.  He can't find any from his suppliers.  Brickwerks seems to be closed this week and at any rate I can't find a phone number for them.
 
I'm in Worthing so a south coast supplier would be nice.
 
Thanks

Try these guys https://www.brakesint.co.uk got a flexible hose from them years ago when I couldn't find it anywhere else.

You could always have them refurbed depending on timescale.

There are numerous optional suppliers which you could try.
Use the (i) to the left to bring up the list.

It is unlikely that the caliper cannot be saved; it is just easier to replace.

You could rebuild what you have.  The hardest part though is getting the pistons out since they are dual if one is seized. 

I did this in a parking lot in Germany when we bought our Florida.  Luckily had the help of a local guy for tools etc.
