Rear Brake, Slide Pins Sticking

On the 2010 GSA I replaced the rear pads and rotor. One pad was metal on metal, The sintered metal came off the backing last Saturday and I have more than 50k miles on the bike. I over-nighted pads and rotor (daily commuter) on Monday and I put everything together on Tuesday. Once everything was together I went to move the bike and couldn't move it. The caliper is stuck (Doh should have checked that and it is stuck good).
Today I finally have had time to really break into it. I've been blasting it occasionally with PB Blaster for about an hour now. Scraped what I could off the pin with a dental pick (rubber boot is toast btw). I can't get the (@!& to budge. Anyone have any tricks, Ideas, or thoughts? Also anyone have a part number the the rubber boots? My RepRom CD doesn't have them listed, only mentions replacing the caliper.

Thanks,
Nate

A heat gun might do the trick - usually works for me There is a UK or UE supplier for S/S replacement pins on Ebay

Useful source of improved parts - Thanks!

Hopefully I won't need them though. I strip and clean the brakes on my 1100 every couple of years or so. A quick polish and application of silicone grease to sliding pins under the rubber boot and copper grease to brake retaining parts seems to keep everything free from corrosion and working smoothly.
