brake bleeding and fluid change

Am I going to mess up the abs or brake system by changing one brake line at a time and installing the stainless steel Lines. and doing a fluid flush by pressing brake down with valve open on calipwr then close valve on pedal upstroke?

No, just keep an eye on the master cylinder to keep fluid in it. Should not have any problems what so ever as long as it doesn't run dry.

Ya what he said.

I have changed brake lines, calipers, etc. no issues. Just don't run the system dry when bleeding.

Motive self breeder

You can do it by yourself in 10 minutes. The hardest part is jack car and remove wheels.

So far the hardest part was cleaning every bit of grime off calipers! I hand washed 5 times each caliper scrubbed good 10 min each one, finale cleaned with caliper prep cleaner. LOL

Yellow paint here today.

Use dot4 if you plan on any RC events.

Motul is good for the price. There are several others out there you can use as well.

+1 I recommend the Motul RBF600. You'll need about 3 pints.
