    Is that for a proper pressure fed fluid change though??

    I recall you mentioned that you were on friendly terms with your dealer, it might be worth an ask to see how much they would do it for. I had my fluid chang done when it was serviced last month, and it was way better afterwards.

    Stripped my brakes replaced with Ap's up front and braided hoses at rear i used gunson bleeding kits the one that uses spare wheel pressure worked spot on, also if your breaking in to the fluid lines if you open blead nipple press the brake pedal to the floor lock it in place with something you will not loose any fluid as it closes the valve so no fluid can flow, try it it works great.

    i replaced all the calipers on the monaro and could not get it to bleed using a proper brake bleeder at the garage i used to work. after and hour n half dicking around i gave up and got a mate to pump the pedal. took 10 mins and pedal went hard straight away no messing about. so by hand/foot is best i think

    when i changed the abs pump on mine i couldnt bleed it again properly using one of the gunson bleeding kits just wasnt right (used correct method) ended up getting a local garage to do it for £30

    also theres no need to bleed the clutch unless you just want to run some new fluid through that aswell
