Post Anyone with SS Brake Lines Install Experience?

I just got the new Brake Lines from Goodridge and want to install them on my MY00RS. But I'm kinda skeptical about taking this little project on my own. I was hoping for some help from any of you New Jerseyians. I need to get them bleeded and all that good stuff.
I would go to a mechanic but the quotes are ridiculous. Anyone done this, care to help me? Don't worry, I know how to take care of people for a job well done!
Oh, by the way, can I install the lines now and change the brake pads at a later time or should I try to do it all in one shot???
Thanks again.

You can change the pads whenever you want... and it only takes about 2 minutes (not counting the time to take the wheel off the car). Bleeding the brakes is easy, but it's a 2 man job, even if you have vacuum bleeder. Now if you have one of those pressurized ones..... woo hoo!!!!

To make the job alot easier..Go out and buy a set of Russel Speed Bleeds..They don't cost alot and I use them in all my cars and bikes.What they do is let the fluid go out when bleeding but no air goes back in because it has a 1 way check valve in it.They run around $30 or less..With these things on you only need 1 person and no open..close..open..close..I love them....Gerry
