Hi smitt and welcome to the GWOF.

What Wing do you have?

When you identify your year/model of Wing the rights folks will offer their help.

In the meantime, are you soaking that caliper with penetrant, which might free it up? Pull on it with a pair of pliers? Brake fluid reservoir full? Regardless of year, it's most likely that the piston is jammed/stuck down/in due to crud. Crud is our common enemy!

Welcome to the GWOF from PA. My only other comment on the caliper issue is this.

If you are going to take the time soak it and or work on it. Just get yourself a rebuilding kit and rebuild it. As Tat said crud is an enemy but rebuilding calipers/mastercylinders is easy. We used to do our race cars every year, became Old Hat.

Welcome along smitt. You've already got some good pointers to start with. Good luck with the repair. One more bit of advice: shop manual!

If the frame is rusted through, you most likely have serious rust on the calipers also.
