Default Brakes are fixed --- Pics

Well first off thanks to everyone for their ideas on here. But this is what i did to fixem.

1st i took a good look at where the bleeder screw was siiting and did not like it. should be higher like 12oclock position.

So i took the caliper off and put a socket in between the pads, had my mom pump the pedal.

So you are basically saying when you do that conversion, bleed the brakes with the calipers off and the bleeders up like that?
