Default Stainless sleeves and vinegar?

Hi guys!
I bought a c3 a few months ago,http://smclassiccars.com/chevrolet/1...d-to-move.html
and its finaly at my house after my (Ex!) FiancÚ decided she doesnt like me anymore.
Anyway, the car had loads of work done before, engine has less than 10 000 miles. But,its been sitting for almost 10 years now! Adding to the problems is the fact that its a NY car, so salt has been eating it for the last 10 years..

The brake calipers it has are Spotless on the inside, Will get pics soon, but the outside looks terrible, loads of rust. I previously cleaned calipers by bathing Them in vinegar, but I wonder if the Stainless inserts would react badly in combo with the iron.. Anyone got any insights? Its a simple chemical formula, but frankly in my current state of mind I can't really think straight.
As a matter of course ill be replacing all the flexi hoses and rust (I mean steel) lines as well.
Cheers

I inject acids with very low pH through my irrigation system at work and the point of contact area requires stainless hardware to avoid weakening and corrosion in the adjacent 6" steel piping.

I would believe vinegar in contact with stainless steel sleeves would be fine.
