wanted to flush brake fluid so figured I'd do brake pads as well. The Akebono pads had about 30k miles on them and were still like 80% - so didn't really need. Swapped them out anyway since it is easy enough with the Brembo calipers. Used an inexpensive one-person power bleeder. Very simple to use and with the refill bottle in the reservoir, not much worry of running it dry once it starts pulling the old fluid.

Also did a coolant flush while I had it up on the lift. Preventative maintenance all up to date at 141,000 miles. Weather turning here in NJ, the hardtop going on soon - but that requires 'winterizing' the shed (power washer and pool stuff to the back, shovels and snowblower to the front) and getting the hardtop out during the changeover.
