Everything fit great. They did not say I needed Super Blue Dot 4 Racing Fluid until I got the brakes, my town doesn't carry it, so I am having it overnighted tomorrow. I will continue the brake install with the hoses and hose brackets installation.

I didnt want to unbolt the old caliper hose until I was ready to put the new fluid in. I didnt want the old fluid in the new calipers.

Thanks Scott.

Have you had a chance to test them out yet and see if the the master cylinder may need possible upgrading? Looks great though.
