Rebuilding calipers, please take a look

Hello, Im in the middle of rebuilding my front caliper ( ea falcon ) and have just installed the new seal, piston and dust boot and wanted to know if the boot looks seated correctly ( this is my first time rebuilding calipers )

so please take a look and tell me what u think

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

Re: Rebuilding calipers, please take a look

Not real clear but it looks okay. Best way to tell is to push the piston out a bit and ensure the seal stays in both grooves.

Yeah what he said :)
Another way I usually do it is to put some brake fluid in and see if it leaks
