Ok..... so welding bolt to end of nipple got it out easy. Simple.
What is really testing my patience and makes me want to The the caliper through the F’ing window is now the brand new nipple I have bought won’t take on the thread and is just turning. Tried gentle tap with hammer to get it going and now the thread inside is getting lower and lower.
Testing is not the word.
I don’t want to bugger up the caliper.

Typical, it was the last nipple on the whole set up that gives me grief!

may need to helicoil it, if its not threading up, do you really want to risk it if the thread does finally catch whats remaining of the original threads

Used helicoils on a motorbike for the casings and never had a problem.

Just looked up helicoil as I’d never heard of it... looks do-able. Does it just sit in the cavity then you wind screw in again like a wall plug in plaster?

If you've never done it before, maybe worth sending it to someone with experience, just thinking its a 1 shot kind of thing, got to get it right first time

The chap at pro-calipers turned out to be up the road from me. £25 and an hour later the thread was sorted and nipple screwing nicely.

Just the piston seals to do now, anyone had a go at doing this or just better to outsource?

Do them yourself, bugger all to it.
In the new seal kit there should a pack of lube, pop the pistons out pull the old seals off pop new ones on lube the piston & bore shove it back in.
