Lol remind me not to go to Merlins...Seriously, the S/c looks good and congrats, but bleeding the brakes was unneccessary and is usually a pain in the ***.
Thanks. Took 15 min. & $2.36 worth of brake fluid to bleed the brakes.
One more quick question. Did you think you got air in the brake line? If so how do you think you got air in it?

Are you guys kidding me? why are giving him **** about bleeding his brakes that is one of the smartest things you can do when you put new brakes on a car. #1 it gets rid of alot of the old Fluid that could have moisture in it and is probably old (brake fluid is a fluid you are supposed to change that almost know one does). #2 why take the chance that you might have got some air in your lines when you compress the piston to get the new pads on.

Have you ever changed your brakes? Theres no way to get air in the lines(USUALLY) unless you disconnect a brake hose. But hey, what do i know.

I do brakes atleast once a month. Why take the chance it your safty and others on the road.
Brake fluid (dot 3+4) is alcohol based, and hydroscopic. IE: it absorbs water from the air, and any other source. This also affects it's anti-rust properties and it's boiling point. The fluid in the caliper is the 'bottom of the barrel' in quality. It has been exposed to the most heat and is the oldest fluid. Flushing all fluid out and replacing it is reccomended in most manuals every two years, most/all people never do.
