Brake fluid flush

I flushed my brake fluid today. Two guy job. One guy pumps brake pedal other guy opens and closes the bleed nut on the calipers.

We do rear left, rear right, front left, front right. Each corner has two calipers to bleed, outside first then inside one.

We flushed it today and it's got all new ATE 200 brake fluid now. The old liquid was put in last June and it wasn't looking great.

The Hawk HP+ pads are about 80% on rear axle, 90% on front. The rear weight bias of the 996 shows here in that the rears are getting used. The engine heat back there can't help either.

The pads dust big time. Bought another power washer today to try and clean wheels and calipers tomorrow on the dust.
