Default Best Way To Plug Brake Lines?

What is it? I'm getting ready to pull the calipers off to send to Mike the Powdercoater. I don't want the system to drain, and I don't want to pinch the lines, so what's the best way to keep all the juice in the system for a week or two? Thanks!

You can plug the lines with just about anything that offers a snug enough fit to keep the fluid in. I usually take the fingers off a nitrile shop glove and zip tie it tightly around the ends.

I like it... Thanks, 'trooper!

BTW, although I'm an AF guy, I was a 31-96 Airborne grad from Benning while I was a ROTC cadet. I'm still just a 5JC!

Outstanding! At least you went and got your wings, they say that week one separates the men from the boys, week two the men from the fools, and on week three the fools jump. My old man was AF and he got the opportunity to go during a break in his teaching duties at the Academy.
