..... seems your question in post #1 changed? Anyway, yes very happy with SS brake lines - firmer feel, no fear of temperature problems, and look sporty too. As far as bleeding the clutch question...... I installed a separate clutch fluid reservior so fluid swaps could be done. Clutch fluid needs changing more often than the brakes.... unless doing alot of road courses. As far as bleeding the clutch, it gradually cycles back into the master cylinder. If not separating reserviors, make sure reservior is mostly your new fluid of choice (I too used the Motul RBF600), then pump clutch about 50 times. Suck fluid out, refill, and pump again until 3 complete fluid swaps. You'll use less fluid if clutch is separated....and avoid getting the clutch dust into the brake system, like the vette guys have already experienced and proven. Link below describes in detail:
