Yeah im going to roll it for sure. thats not hard at all. I already have a roller and know how to do it on my own.I might have to run alot of camber to clear though even after that. I had to do the same thing to get the rears to fit on the mazda lol

Havent updated in a while, finally got the upper ball joints on the front. put new brake lines on and blead the whole system out. I have never in my life seen brake fluid this dirty. Its amazing how much people ignore small things sometimes





Brake fluid was so dirty it looked like oil.SMH

Got my alignment done thanks to the recommendation of YamahaSHO
His friend at Superior Honda of Omaha Took care of me

i dont think it damaged anything.it was more fine dirt and discoloration due to age. i have put some cheap fluid in for now to "wash out" the system for now before i drain it again and put in the brembo fluid. something ive noticed alot now is that everytime i install SS brake lines on a car the pedal changes feel alot. the initial travel of pedal is soft before getting hard and bitting. it changes the feel of the pedal and you have to readjust but its actually better for heal toe.

A reverse bleed should solve the initial softness. I pretty much always reverse bleed anymore, especially if I've swapped lines or calipers.

How does a reverse bleed work? and now its actually perfectly fine and firm. I have no idea why it was a bit mushy right after we just bleed the new cheap fluid in.

Reverse bleeding pushes fluid up through the bleeder. It helps get air out of the lines as it travels up more easily than down.

Hmm, sounds interesting. I usually go for a regular gravity bleed then a pressure bleed into a bleeder bottle ensuring that there is fluid in the line to the bottle so no air return back into the caliper. I make sure to keep the bottle at a height higher than the caliper that way fluid is always sitting right at the bleeder and air wont go back in

Recently dropped off he car to get some body work done. Had rust by driver side door and decided it was time to get it fixed and take care of most of the annoying dings all over the car. also had the front emblem on the bumper shaved
















Previous owner left holes in trunk from a wing. Got those filled in











front emblem shaved
