Use a syringe and empty the small clutch reservoir at least once a week. Replace it carefully with fresh and clean fluid. I'm using RBF DOT 4 racing brake fluid for the clutch.

I'm using an injection fluid syringe which doesn't drip.

Also, cut a small slit in the top to keep the fluid fresh:

When you disconnect the clutch line how are you bleeding the line to get the air out? I thought the bleeder screw was inside the bell housing.

Good to know, but I do catch the the bottom on the edge of the garage sometimes. Makes me worried about the skirts :(

The install was really easy. Under an hour by myself in the driveway. They are a factory part so the clip right into the same holes as the stock panels. I used a long screwdriver to get to each clip and didn't even break any. But just in case, they include a complete set of new clips.

Interestingly this same shop takes TWO Week to install Oracle Halos. I wouldn't pay someone to do this but thought it was ridiculous he takes two weeks.

No, I haven't looked at anything else. Are they halo/hids? I'm going to take my project to the end. But yeah two week install?? That's nuts. It should take two days at most, and that's only if you do the 24hr curing on the seal. I'd say I put in about 15-20 hrs of billable labor start to finish (rough estimate since I was working on it in the evenings and not really tracking).

Im doing mine the same way,except im just using regular brake fluid still. I change mine at every fill up,i empty and refill about 5 times and pump the clutch 30 times each time i refill it,as it continues to bring up dirty fluid.Try it just empty the res.and fill it once then pump the clutch 30 times and look how dirty the fluid is.

I think they are halo hid's. I'm not buying them. Just curious if you explored them and what was learned.

What I learned from my experience? Big lessons to take away were a) make sure to glue/caulk the shrouds during install, b) test the halos/lighting before install...that's about it. Those were the only reasons I have for the delays in my project

Peeled. Repainted. Then my son flew his remote control helicopter into them. Stripped. Painted third time.

I'm actually really liking the bezel less look of the tail lights.
