    good lord! when are these little bubbles gonna stop flowing?? The driver rear has all of these microscopic bubbles that are just slowly running out. Will they ever stop? Or is it just part of the fluid?

    It's not part of the fluid. They'll stop when the air is out.

    yeah, I realized that after about 30 or 45 minutes... but I like bleeding this way though. I can really get a light in there and check the slow fluid flow and how clear it is. I guess all of those little tiny bubbles can equate to a pretty big air pocket under pressure. They are flowing nicely though. On my last corner now.

    It must be lonely doing it solo. Try to find a victim to depress the pedal for you, it goes quicker. Good luck.

    actually, I got it done and the pedal feel is 10x better than it was. It's better IMO this way simply because it's darker and my led showed all of the little bubbles that come out. I'm extremely happy with the feel now.

    thanks... yeah, it's like a single little tap now does the job when the pedal before would just sink halfway before it would bite.

    thanks man... it feels like a whole new car now. I may check it again in a week or so just to make sure there are no more microbubbles in there. The thing is I never would have seen those bubbles if it hadn't been for using my led on my phone.
