I'll try to get the vids posted asap.
Unfortunately we didn't get around to flushing the clutch fluid or replacing the brake lines. I'll try to get it done next time.

yeah it be nice to get a video of this. I'd like to see how you bleed the brakes when you do this.

Calcul8 (Nathan) and I are installing these right now... he forgot that we needed to record and did his side before I was ready... I'll be doing mine soon though, so I'll makes sure to video that. As for bleeding, I'm just going to use my power bleeder.

Show some footage of you using that as well. I am thinking of getting one soon, but wanted to see it in action first.

I'm also unsure of exactly how to do this. Are you supposed to completely bleed out the brake system before switching the lines or do you not have to?

thanks!

Do not empty the all the brake fluid before completion. Its going to cause more problems. Install the lines, THEN bleed the fluid.

do you have to plug the steel brake line then? or does it have a leak preventing mechanism?

thanks again!

I've replaced lines several times and I've never plugged them to prevent fluid leakage. I usually just let all the fluid drain out and then I would just power flush with fresh fluid.
