With the amount of old fluid that ended up on my garage floor during this install - there cant be that much left as its all been replaced by now! lol

Did you run the Mc dry? If so you might need to bleed that or you might have some air in the abs system. If that is the case you need to go down a dirt road and slam on the brakes so the abs pushes the air bubbles out

No - I'm 99.96% sure I didn't do that.


I think it has to do with the emergency brake cable tension - as I'm not sure I had much, if any rear brakes. lol

The black 'e-coat' on the rear rotors were still mostly present when the fronts were worn fully off after the quick trip.

You didn't know that? You have a lot to learn young grasshopper.

I got my oem mirrors from a Ford dealer on the east coast. They had a special deal on corral, already painted for $150. IIRC, they sold out in a week lol.

It's not a huge "bang for your buck" type of deal though.
