Clean man. Sad to see the first one go though.

almost done with rear disc swap just have to rebleed the brakes tomorrow
since none of the bolts wanted to come off it inspired me to buy a air impact wrench which is now the coolest tool ive ever bought

so i took my car to a shop since it still wasnt working after a week of bleeding the brakes and had them do it. turns out the brakes were bled properly, the place i bought my brake pads sent me the wrong front pads, so they werent making contact with rotor and thats why it was mushy. so alot more money that it should have cost later, finally have my car back and a email to send

its actually pretty easy. i highly recommend an impact wrench though thats why it was as easy as it was. and making sure you get the right brake pads so your not stuck driving your moms jetta for a week and a half :unamused:
