Cool Line Lock installed yesterday

So I decided that today was the day to do this with one good arm and one quasi-usable arm. I figured that a month was long enough of a wait after rotator cuff repair surgery. Install went pretty straight forward with abit of discovery learning along the way. It had been so long since I bled brakes I forgot what to do lol. I bought a 35 dollar vacuum kit from Sears thinking it would make it easier... nope, still had air in lines. Screw it, I just had the wife push on the brake pedal till no more air in the blead tube. All fine now. I tested in front of my house tonight and again a lil further down the street. Neighbors were out front smoking cigarettes and watchin me hehe. I'll take it out tomorrow in good light and ensure theres no pull left or right.
I mounted the switch on the console, forward of the shifter, in the coin tray. I used a safety toggle instead of the the simple flip switch SLP sent with the kit.

Looks pretty but is all hidden now by a 3GCustomz ABS and Fuse Box covers. The less a dealer mechanic sees the better


The red safety toggle in the coint tray is what I installed in leiu of the standard throw switch the kit came with


My right shoulder is a lil sore but not too bad. I had my wife and daughter help with a couple tricky things that could only be done right handed

Pretty much all day but that was do more to my disability plus me taking my time. If I were to do one again it would take 2-3 hours tops.

I have my Hurst kit for 2011 SRT8, read the install instructions and all seems pretty simple, except for "bleed brakes" step, to which is provides no instruction....

I read HELP!!! Brake Bleeding and that left me with a few questions:

1) When installing a line lock, is it also necessary to bleed the ABS system? I can't do this myself, I don't have a scan tool, only the dealers have those, right?

2) I only have 2 jack stands. Can I bleed the rear first using the manual method, then the front? It says the rear needs to be 10 to 12 inches higher than the front. For the whole procedure? I guess I need to go get two more jackstands and make sure I can have the rear 10in higher than the front and get all 4 tires off at the same time.

I only bled the front 2 brake lines with the car sitting on all 4 wheels on the garage floor. Some will swear by bleeding all 4 wheels but if you didnt introduce air into those rear lines then your good to go. I did not bleed the ABS system... I only bled the front 2 lines by topping off the master cylinder, had a clear line on the bleed nipple at the brake caliper, opened the bleed nipple abit, drain into cup or whatever, and had the wife pump the brakes slowly till no more air came out the bleed line. Then close the nipple and done.
