For those of you on a budget like me, but this still sounds like something you need/want to do, check out what I found!!

Looks like I need to head to the hardware store and get myself an extra Master Cylinder lid!!!

We have a round cap similar to the one in that picture. I don't think our attempt sealed and have a couple other caps to try it on.

The only thing that inexpensive bleeder is missing is a pressure gauge. That way you know how much pressure is in the tank. Doesn't seem like it'* necessary though. Good find John.

Is there a caliper upgrade that can be done also to make our brakes stop better?

i done believe there is anything for the 92-99. But from experience with Bills SSEi, you dont need better stoping power for a daily driver
