Brief Description:  Brakes come alive!

Filling up the brake lines without a single air bubble is possible, but requires a little attention to detail. No sweat. I knew that the brake lines needed to be running up hill to avoid bubbles in the lines so I used a car jack to lift the nose up. I then pumped the fluid in at the calipers, up hill and into the master cylinders, while the lovely wife held the reservoir at the highest point in the nose. I was pumping away until my lovely assistant let me know I had reached the half way mark. All the while, I'm closely watching the fill line to make absolutely sure that not a single air bubble would enter the system after a few pumps. I then re-installed the pedals, pumped em up a few times to fill the lines tight and squeeze the pucks down. After this, I topped off the reservoir to just below the internal threads and closed em up. Sure is nice to have the brake and wheel upgrade complete.
Oh, I forgot. I spent the first hour, taking the left brake shoe off, to replace the broken liner. It was a straight forward replacement.
