I title this one: “Not allowed on the couch”

Hooray! Didn’t take many pictures, but got the brake lines bled, twice, spacers on, and new wheels + tires on. Spacers made a huge difference but, as expected, seem like they’re pretty janky. I have an upgraded set on order that should clamp to the hubs.

Soooooooooooo close. Spacers were a good call.

Bleeding didn’t go great because, apparently, the rear bleeders were sucking a ton of air in through the threads. So much so that I couldn’t get any fluid to come though with the vacuum bleeder. Little teflon tape sorted that and everything else went great... until I let the reservoir run dry. DOH! Ahh well.

Now would be a good time to clean the garage and stuff, but instead I’m going to take a shower and get ready for anniversary dinner. (Sidenote: we broke into the anniversary liquor last night at midnight to make sure is wasn’t terrible. It wasn’t. Looking forward to trying it for reals tonight!)

I’ll probably do a summary of the work... eventually. Right now I’m tired and could use a nap, but will settle for a shower.
