I had one last go at the caliper tonight, I really wanted the brakes to work properly before going to Denmark next weekend, and I struck out at obtaining another caliper in time.

Had the caliper off and the pistons out. Then I attacked the pitted areas with 150 and 400 grit sandpaper, trying to smooth the area as much as possible. Then I put in new rubber piston-to-bore seals for good measure, and jogged the pistons ten-fifteen times after bleeding.

Finally, I have brakes that don't judder (much). There still a very small amount left, but that is down to a worn steering rack and not perfectly balanced wheels, methinks. Oh joy!
