Well, in nearly 50 years of driving mostly near-junkers so my wife could
have the good car (my '04 Spyder is the first new car I've had since I
was in the Navy in the early '60's), I've rebuilt half a dozen master
cylinders and even more slave cylinders and calipers, and never had
either difficulty or a faulty result. It's really close to trivial, and
if you have the dedicated tools, it is trivial.
