In person How-To Brakes

This sunday i'll be possibly rebuilding one of my front calipers and definately replacing all brake pads/rotors and bleeding the brake system. Wondering if there's anybody that would like to come by and learn how to do these things for their own knowledge for work on their cars. If you're interested post up in here.

I would highly reccomend you to buy a Motive pressure bleeder. It makes life sooo much easier when bleeding the brakes/clutch hydraulic systems.

Garage List
Dahh, I would be completely down for this as this seems like a good chance for some valuable knowledge. Unfortunately, I have a SCCA AutoX event on Sunday. Keep me posted if your plans do change for any reason.
