Fun brake job today

Ok so i got home from work thursday, my truck sits at my dads through the week. Well drove home and my brakes fely extremly soft, and smelt as if a caliper was sticking, So i got up at 6:30 and got to napa when they opened and picked up the three other calipers already replaced on last summer. I had never went into the brakes on it yet. So, i have three calipers powerslot rotors, hawk pads, and skyjacker ss brake lines. So front was going smooth until went to install the brake lines and my lf has some sort of T at the hard line and soft line . so kept the factory lines till another day. Started working on the back front tied up and finished expect bleeding them. Got to the rr and the lower caliper bolt was frozen then went to the lr and same thing. So removed then and heated with then torch and after an hour i got them remove. went to napa again and got a new slide pin hardware kit and the new ones still wouldnt move so i toke the drill to them, and lubbed them up real good. worked great then. then went to install the rear ss line and the right fitting was larger on the stock and not on the skyjacker. With all the new installed exept the lines. So i started to bleeding them and no fluid at all to the rear and after alot of bleeding finally got them bleed. And all was done 8 hours later
