Good to hear you got it on. Hope you tried to torque the hell out of it.
I thought about that but was too scared to crush a brake line. I did it to 33 lbs and then again to 98 to make sure that the bolt turned more than 45 degrees. I gave it another quick go after that but heard the threads start to crack so I left it at that. I'll check again after a hundred miles or so
