Post Installing Prodrive 330mm brake kit

I am getting the Prodrive 330mm brake kit and I am debating whether to try the install myself.
Has ANYONE done a COMPLETE brake kit install that can give me some tips/instructions? I have NEVER worked on brakes AT ALL, so it's ALL new to me. Would I be better off taking it to a professional cost and eating the labor costs?

Thanks

Its just a matter of remove and replace, there are left and right specific sides, just take your time. And add stainless steel lines if you don't already have them. I think a single stage booster will improve your brake feel considerably too. I take it you have 17" rims to go with the big brakes kit?

Yeah. I have 17" Speedline Prodrive wheels, and the kit comes with Stainless brake lines. I was planning on getting the booster with the kit. The ONLY thing I'm REALLY concerned about is the brake lines/fluid. When you bleed brakes, how do you know you've gotten all the air out? Do you have ro refill the fluid once you've bled?

Wow, those brakes are very cool. Hope you got a good deal on them.

Here is a brake install photo essay, which may help you decide whether to do it yourself:
