Re: Brake fluid after rebuilt calipers ???
Thanks for all of the replies....
I had researched the brake fluid choice a while back and had my mind made up to go with Castrol DOT 4 Advanced Performance Series. I understand this is the new name for the old Castrol DOT 4 LMA (Low Moisture Affinity). That was a fluid that JohnZ had recommended but he also said you need to flush it every two years.
Now that the time has come, I'm only re-thinking my choice because of the damage that DOT 4 can do to paint. With all new lines, I counted 21 total line connections which is 21 potential leaks. This car will be a fair weather driver but everything is painted really nice and now I'm starting to get the willies about possible damage to the paint.
I just have to make up my mind but from the answers given here, it looks like I should be OK with either choice regardless of what Vette Brakes might have used as a lubricant.
