Hi guys,

I'm going to install stainless steel brake lines this weekend and I have a couple of questions.

I have a one man brake bleeder kit that uses compressed air to pull the fluid out at the caliper that I purchased from HFT anyone used these before? Are the good? crap?

- How do you get the screen out of the brake reservoir to suck the fluid out or, do I even need to do this? The kit has a bottle that you fill with replacement fluid and attach to the top of the reservoir. I have ATE super DOT 4 blue replacement fluid to replace the ATE gold in there now.

- Should I replace a brake line then bleed it? or should I just replace all the lines (2 in the rear) and then bleed the lines?

Any comments, gotchas, etc are greatly apprieciated

replace all lines then bleed the entire system

the screen comes out.. just pops out.. i think i used needle nose pliers to grab and pull
