OMGHi2U Want to help me do a brake job? make some extra cash?!?!

Im looking at upgrading my brakes on the wrex by putting on 4 new rotors, new pads, and stainless lines with some new fluid. Never done this on my car so looking for some good help with someone experienced. Ill pay $50 and supply some lunch and beverage all of your choice!! Im located in Tacoma, can be done at my place or yours. Im free this weekend as well as next weekend, pretty much any weekend that works for you (beggars cant be choosers right!)
Appreciate it everybody!

It's a pretty straight-fowrard process. Just be sure of the order you bleed the lines correctly = farthest from the master cyliner to closet.

I use 2 c-clamps to compress the pistome. If you get a dealie at the auto parts store, make sure the setup will fit in your calipers.

If you are replacing all the fluid, drain some out first from the bleeding valves, because if you have added fluid, when you compres the piston, it might overflow either immediatly, or when you open it.

I like the blue / yellow stuff because it is easy to tell if you have drained all the fluid from a particular line.

I have tuesday wednesday thursday off and have done many brake jobs. It would probably be easiest for me if you drove down to olympia, but i would also be willing to drive to tacoma if need be. We can do this at night or during the day. Wont take long either way. Brakes are super easy. PM me.
