only thing i heard is if the pattern on the old pads is uneven can make noise other than that i think is ok...

Monchy36; As long as I remove the cap from the Master Cylinder, does that mean there is no need for me to bleed the brake lines?

I've been looking for a picture of painted v6 calipers for so long! They look awesome, what did you use?

As long as you do not remove the caliper from the line you should have no need to bleed the calipers. When I did my install I just unbolted the caliper let it set on a near by part and then changed out the rotor and pad. I didn't mess around with any bleeding.

No problem. The only time bleeding is necessary is when you introduce air into the system, and by not removing the line there is nothing leaving or entering the loop.

So I would for sure need to have them blead when I remove the Calipers to have them Powder Coated!

Yes then it would need to be done, it's not difficult just time consuming. This weekend I plan to flush my brake system and install my GTO clutch res and replace the fluid with Moutl RBF600. Hopefully I can get to it...

This is a good write up. Is that the direction of the slots for rotation?

Great write up! Subscribed for reference, as I might be going there this winter.

JusticePete also posted a great, must-read article about brakes and braking myths, with a link if you want to see the pics:
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showpo...1&postcount=16
Among other great info, it says that many issues happen because new brake parts are not properly broken in, (probably not part of that new car prep by your dealer) and that new disks should be 'bedded' with used pads of the same material that will be used going forward.
