:clap: Awesome! Good luck with the install. And remember, DON'T COMPLETELY DRAIN THE FLUID OUT OF YOUR SYSTEM like this moron did. And get help if you can.

I got too much air in the brake system and made a costly mistake. Finally had to take her to Nissan who I know overcharged me for 'bleeding.' I suggest lowering the fluid level in the master cylinder but not emptying it out.

Here's the thread that I followed: bleeding brakes

Basically, when you unplug the lines on each corner, they will drip but they won't go gushing all over the place. Having someone in the car to pump the brakes will bleed them faster while another person holds a receptacle at each corner (1 corner at a time).

Here's another thread: brake pressure
