Keep brake fluid off paint.
Install your parts. Fill the reservoir with DOT4 brake fluid and do not let it go empty while you're bleeding it...or you get to start over. Squeeze the lever, crack the bleeder, and catch the fluid and wet bubbles on a rag. close the bleeder, release the lever, top off the reservoir, do it again. And again. and again until the lever is firm. If it doesn't get firm, strap down the lever overnight to allow the bubbles to rise into the reservoir.
