I did that by accident, cause when I was pushing the brake pedal for the piston to come out a bit so I could clean the rubber around it, one accidentally came out and most of the brake fluid came out! So I had a fun time after that, to put it back together and lucky I had a bottle of brake fluid at the barn.

HAHA but that does not a proper brake fluid change make. Gotta run clean fluid through all the lines.

If you want more information regarding the item pictured in the post above please scroll down the page linked here. P/N MV7300 - it's the second item on the page. It looks interesting to me. If one has a compressor then this item could be very useful.

I think you're mistaken, presuming pierrot is representing a business and promoting it. atikovi posted pictures without any descriptions while pierrot provided a link to the manufacturer for detailed descriptions. I've never known pierrot promoting himself and/or any product for personal gain.

They look good to me! I have to admit, however, that I will seldom see any of those where I live - much lower latitude, low elevation, semi-arid, and no snow in this region for seventy years...... What's more striking to me is the rims - they look great!!
