Re: Brake lines

This afternoon I replaced the bad brake lines. As most of you
suggested, I just let the fluid drip out into an empty can. Don't know
what made me assume that the fluid would _flush_ out when opening the
line as I have done this sort of work before on my Opel. But it only
dripped out a mouthful till I had replaced the lines.

I hope one sunny day the screwing and replacing will come to and end
and I can just driiiiive.
