Just replaced a brake line and flushed the ABS

I just replaced my front brake line due to a leak and then flushed the ABS. Yes, all 4 circuits. The flush wasn't as scary as I thought it would be thanks to all the documentation here. Funny part is though that where I now suspect the "bad" part of the hose was is also where I think I had a broken/shorted moto lights wire over a year ago. I attached a picture of the old hose.

There's more about the job on our blog at: http://ourbmw.wordpress.com/2012/07/...mw-abs-system/
