23 We decided to use a DOT-5 silicone brake fluid since it's safe for painted surfaces and has a dry boiling point of 600 degrees. We will be doing multiple upgrades to this car later and we like the ide of the brake fluid not eating paint. To bleed the system, we first let gravity do most of the work for us. We filled the master and then cracked all the bleeder screws. Once one of the bleeders started to dribble fluid we closed it and waited till this happened at each one. It took a few hours for fluid to finally start dripping from all the bleeders. One thing to note is DOT-5 is not compatible with any other brake fluid so, unless you have cleaned out or changed everything like we did, use what is already in your system, most likely DOT-3 or 4.
