Just about any DOT3 and up rated fluid will work, but if I'm doing a complete system, after flushing all the lines, I would go with the DOT5 silicone fluid. Used it on a Harley restoration and was impressed with the brake feel and the plus of the silicone being a water repellent and doesn't damage paint.

Draw back to the silicone dot5 is that everybody has to know that is what is in the system. It is not compatible with Dot anything lower than 5. Mix them and you have problems.

Started the swap today
Will have the system bled in about one hours worth of work

Pretty simple and easy swap

Looks great. With all due respect, compared to the OEM on the Elkys, they are big.
However, big brake refers to 6 piston calipers.

I have Brembo 4 piston calipers on my Camaro SS and 4 piston Wilwood on my Elky.

Curious, would the current Camaro SS /Vette Brembos have worked?
