[DML] Brake job

While I was changing out my steering rack. (Yes I did it by myself) 
I noticed that I had about 3 mm of pad left on my front brakes.  
Lord knows what the rear brakes look like.

To make a long story short I need to know how to properly change out 
the pads and bleed the system.  The calipers were replaced with 
reconditioned ones about 2 years ago so those are fine.  The pedal 
is a just a tad stiff but the brakes are still responsive.  I don't 
have to mash in the pedal either.

I figure that after changing out the steering rack (right of passage 
type repair) that changing the brake pads should be no problem.

I believe I also read on the list that I could use #80 grit 
sandpaper on a sandpaper attatchment for a rotary drill to break the 
glaze off of the rotors.  Just making sure that was correct.

Just e-mail me off list with any tips and help on how to do this

Thanks for everything
