P30 Brake Bleeding

Hi everyone, I have been searching trying to find instructions how to bleed a 94 Bounder Brakes. Any tips or things to watch out for would be appreciated!!! I purchased a nice brake bleeding system and I have some nice NAPA Ceramic pads to put on. What is the best way to flush the fluid and replace it and how much do I need?
Thanks everyone.

I'm not sure what bleeding kit you have, but I bought one of these:

Speedi-Bleed Complete Brake Bleeder Kit

I filled up the container and bled until I had clean fluid at each wheel. I can't remember how much it actually took but it wasn't excessive.

Even though the length of the lines seems like it would use a lot of fluid, the small diameter of the lines uses remarkably little more than bleeding any other vehicle. I'm sure you know to start at the corner furtherest from the brake cylinder and work towards it. Use lots of liquid wrench on the bleeders and let it soak overnight, they could be pretty rusty on a 18 year old chassis. Good luck with it!

If you haven't yet, consider changing the brake flex hoses while you are in there. The hoses break down from the fluid over time, which causes the hose to swell shut. this will cause pressure to be trapped in the slave cylinder, causing the brakes to drag or even lock.
